Something's hatching !

This morning, while wandering alongside the mountain stream of my overflowing imagination, I met her:


I approached her with caution, she didn't seem hostile. Then I saw that she looked a bit flustered.
I came nearer and saw the two eggs she guarded. One of them very big, twice the size of an ostrich egg, with muted colors. I wonder weather there are dragon species who, like cuckoos, put their eggs in other peoples' nests. Perhaps that's why she looked so upset!

The other one, smaller, somehow looked a lot more like HER egg, I thought. And it was hatching!

I slowly backed away after a while, not wanting to disturb her. I'll go back tomorrow to see if the offspring is out:)

I wish I had an imagination that overflows like that. Wonderful!

Oh Andrea...your muse is having off-spring? All of this color is popping out everywhere! I wonder, though, if maybe the other egg...the large one is really a gift from your muse and the little one is 'another muse' there to help out. Either way, it looks like you have some nurturing to do there!

Wow! These watercolors really inspire me to give this medium a shake again. Also, I keep wanting to be a little dot in the corner of the page to be there observing closer all which is going on and happening in these paintings. I see so much, the more I look!

Love the colors...who wouldn't, right? Of course, I also love the story you are weaving here.

Thanks so much!

I love that phrase: mountain stream of my overflowing imagination. These are just gorgeous watercolors. You are now a master of the medium I pronounce.! I esp love the two eggs.

Dave, thanks so much for your visit, I guess you have this imagination too, looking at what you did with your eyes shut:)

Kim, thanks so much for talking about the muse here. I think, mine really is the dragon at the moment, a female dragon:)

Cestandrea said...

Cris, thanks for your sweet comment, saucer eyes:) In spring people get those eyes...

Cestandrea said...

Artist unplugged, oh yes, we are already thinking of Easter here too, cause that is when the Duffodils blossom (often)...

Cestandrea said...

Suki, wow, thanks that is a compliment wow. But I feel humble when I'm painting with watercolor, not really like a master:) (or is a master humble?)

Cestandrea said...

Lynn, yes I guess spring is in us now, eggs are hatching, ideas too!

Ah, a dragon lover cataloging their habits and reproduction...in a very lovely fashion I might add. Delightful!

Cestandrea said...

Flo:) Candy dragon eggs, Yess! :)

Cestandrea said...

Tammy, thanks so much for stopping by, I haven't thought about that yet, but I think you are right, I definitely am a dragon lover, - can only see them early in the morning though....:)
