This is the real secret of life — to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realise it is play. The only thing that is ultimately real about your journey is the step that you are taking at this moment. That’s all there ever is. I’m here to tell you that the path to peace is right there, when you want to get away. When you are present, you can allow the mind to be as it is without getting entangled in it. If you miss the present moment, you miss your appointment with life. That is very serious!

"Country Creek" watercolour - Maree©
I've decided to start doing a daily sketch and painting exercise again, which is something I used to do but due to, dare I say it, life that happens! I fell out of the habit. Daily sketching and painting gives you a chance to exercise the big three P's - practice, practice, practice!
I did this watercolour on Bockingford acid-free, 72lb (150g/m²) watercolour paper as part of my quest to try and do a painting or sketch-a-day.
