Early morning studies

After a long cloudy day yesterday, I woke up with the sun this morning excited to work on a few studies for larger-scale paintings.

The ether-reality of watercolor makes it the perfect medium with which to attempt to capture the fleeting emotions, thoughts, glimpses of truth that show up in my mind in the moments after waking.

Camped by a stream last night, and my subconscious listened to the flow of the water as I slept. I woke up several times thinking it was raining, but it was just the flow of the water.

I recently talked to a psychic who told me that some events from a past life are holding me back in this life, and that I need to work on clearing that old energy. Interesting to think about one lifetime flowing into the next. No longer reality, but still having an effect.
