On my desk there's always a glass of clear water. It's because of Oscar, the cat. He likes to drink there, on my working-desk, which is very high. I have now to put a chair in front of the desk so that he can jump in two times, he's too old (well...fat) to jump right onto the desk.
So. This glass of water always filled and the watercolor and paper I always keep on this desk make it easy for me in the morning, fresh out of bed, to stumble to my desk and do something. Just for the pleasure of handling the brush, the colors and the water, watching pigments fuse. One each day and I fill a "Morning dragon notebook" with these early morning paintings... (there are more to come)
These are friendly dragons, although they may look a bit upset cause they feel like I squeezed them into tight space, where they can't move around and spit fire etc, and they don't like to stand still....
Oh, you ask where did they come from? Maybe it's because I'm re-reading the Harry Potter Books at the moment (love them very much:)
