Rapid watercolour/felt tip pen – The moon, mountains & magical hummingbird.

From the book Buddhist Offerings: –

‘Let us try to recognise the precious nature of each day’.   The 14th Dali Lama. 

I was given the book, ‘Buddhist Offerings 365 Days’ ten years ago on my 60th  birthday.     Each and every day it offers words of comfort and wisdom.

    What inspiring colors for this bitterly cold day. (A 1 degree F wind chill & 16 degrees without wind when I got up at 4AM (that’s -17 C and -8.8).
    I bought the book months ago when you mentioned it so enthusiastically last year, but I haven’t spent much time with it. I think I’ll take it to the office with me. Huge hugs! ❤ 🙂

      Ah so the cold has arrived at last….maybe a sign that we will be getting more normal temperatures…it’s been so very mild. Very glad that the colour resonates…..and also that you have the book….I keep it close at hand and consult each day. It’s such a gem….Janet. xxx

    What a beautiful painting, I love the moon and the hummer! Yes, it’s about living in the present, we need to be reminded as it’s so easy to constantly think ahead.xxx

      This little sketch was inspired by a painting that Madame Notable made in Paris – glad you like….and yes it is so easy to jump ahead. We need to make plans, but then we don’t have to worry today about how they will work out:) xxx
