A Gaggle of Pears



  I used my favorite watercolors Dr. Ph. Martin Concentrated watercolors (which I love!) because they are so bright and pleasing to my eye. I have collected many colors now and I would even like more but they mix beautifully also so if I would just take the time to experiment with my colors then I wouldn't need any more.
There is something about these colors that make my heart flutter--really. It's a cheap thrill--well not so cheap depending on how many colors I indulge myself in.
I will be leaving tomorrow to drive up to Greenville to stay with Macaulay and Baby Marc will Daddy Marc goes on a business trip.
See y'all next week!
