Water colour & water-colour pencils
Vegetables under the ground, pushing through the layers of soil as they grow, happily (my vegetables are organic!) absorbing all those lovely nutrients.

We often think of ourselves as only growing upwards into the sunlight, though simultaneously we are growing deeply, down inside, where no one else can see. A richer kind of growth.

I'm itching to do more water colour, but first we have a Sunday soccer match to watch and there is an acrylic painting in my studio, only just started, that needs some attention. Lots to look forward to today!
