{i've found a new love...}

i've found a new love ::  watercolor. 
i started a painting a few weeks ago and love every aspect of it. first i started with acrylics and those are fabulous, but do take some time, which i don't have a ton of right now. 

 i love how the canvases came out that i painted, but then i met watercolor...
you mean i can mix words that i love so much with this loveliness??!?  and it doesn't take me hours?  don't get me wrong.  i still love to sit and paint for long periods of time with good music.  i just don't have lots of said time...

watercolor :: be still my heart.  i'm beyond excited about this new venture.  if you've never tried painting, you must! it's good for the soul.  i was able to pick up some small paper and paints at hobby lobby for under $15.  well worth it!

a very inspiring friend stated that this is such an act of worship for her and i 154.29% agree.  when i penned and painted the lyrics to watermark's "captivate us" it was a  beautiful time of worship for me.
