Here are examples of scenes I saw and photographed that made me yearn to paint.
This week while my kids are away at Boy Scout camp, I am teaching myself to paint in watercolor using books and YouTube videos. It's time to stop dreaming and give it a try once and for all. Over the years I have slowly purchased watercolor painting supplies and they sat untouched. Many of my art and craft supplies were given away before we moved but the watercolors came with me to the little rental house. I vowed to myself to do this thing before we moved again. It's one of the few hobby things I am committing to doing while in this transition year.

P.S. I miss Cape Cod. We weren't able to travel there in 2011 and now I'm 2000 miles away so it's no longer a quick trip to go...mabye in 2012?
