A White Elephant In The Room?

I didn’t get chance to do a watercolour painting yesterday, although I did try. I attempted some roses, so imagine if you will a painting of something that looks like misshapen tomato sculptures at best, or fat red cabbages at worst. Hence it wasn’t posted, and will never see the light of day ever again.

I have done a watercolour today, however.

It’s another in my series of versions of ATCs/ACEOs of baby animals resting.

We’ve arrived at the watering hole on our safari now, and there’s a baby elephant cooling himself at the water’s edge.

Each of these paintings measure 2.5 X 3.5 inches, and they really are fun to do!

This has been another post for #WorldWatercolorGroup, of which more details can be found by clicking the link below:

Wordle: Peak Season

Like a foolish prophet, I said it would be fine
Travel overnight, get there with lots of time
So with the stars shimmering brightly overhead
Off on our hols we set, when we should’ve been in bed
The best shot to beat the traffic, or so I thought
Soon turned into a nightmare, nerves and tempers fraught
No point in venting anger, just sit and wait and chill
The road will be clear once we get over that hill
Stuck in a line of caravans, none moving but an inch
The rhythm of the engine, moaning, snoring, makes me wince and flinch
A plume of red mist from tail lights in front becomes the final straw
Although with nowhere to go we’ll be stuck here forever more
Pick a point upon the road, I say, somewhere to mark the way
And my thoughts return to clean white sheets, between which I could be lay
