Watering Can

I’m grateful to have learned about the Peerless Watercolor Papers and the Water Brush.  My father loves adding color to his contour drawings and the Papers and Brush make it easy for him to do so.  Teaching him to draw and paint is a new and rewarding challenge.  Because of his Alzheimers / Dementia, his ability to express himself with words has become more difficult.  Drawing appears to have opened a new door to creative expression.

After working in the community garden on Thursday, we sat together and drew one of the watering cans.  Hmmmmm.  I think I forgot to put it away.
