Painting with Ink: Connections

Today was an exceptionally good day with our visit to the Elderberry and Silverclub members.  When working with my member today I could very clearly see that she was enjoying what she was doing.  We worked with how ink travels in paths left by water on the paper.  There is a degree of surprise to this sort of work, and we both enjoyed seeing what would happen, and it was gratifying to find that we were both laughing and genuinely enjoying what we were doing.  I have never had a bad day with my member, but today was particularly good.  I was also particularly impressed with her transformation of a simple yellow circle into a sun, then a sunflower, and then a sunflower garden casting a shadow.  It was abstract thinking, but really creative in its ability to connect all aspects of what we did today.
