Taking a Break

"Taking a Break"
watercolor (6" x 9.5")

There I sit, with paintbrush in hand...working on a large train piece, struggling with commissions,
and looming deadlines...
I gaze out my studio window,
the Cosmo flowers my daughter and I planted weeks ago have taken off. 
Tall and full of blooms. 
Gently swaying in the Spring breeze. 
I need a break...I grab a pencil and start to sketch.
Freely laying down the paint, playing with the water.
Ah,  I needed that...a much needed break.
