Goat Watercolor Painting

I could not resist this cute little guy, which was another of the great reference photos on Wet Canvas from last Friday.

5 X 7 Watercolor on Arches 140 lb paper finished last evening.

Thoughts on living transparently....letting others see our "shabbiness" as she says in the Velveteen Woman, our faults, helps people to feel more comfortable. Boasting about our strengths and accomplishments builds a wall. The things that keep us from living this way are shame and insecurity. It made me think of this poem....

He drew a circle that shut me out--
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!"
