BASKET OF HERBS – LA JOLLA FARMER’S MARKET – WATERCOLOR

Nature & Botanical Sketches 8-1-2010 to Current - 39 WATERMARKNATURE & BOTANICAL ART JOURNAL – 2011 A long time ago I used to teach basket weaving & I will always have a soft spot in my heart for anything in a basket.  When I look at this watercolor painting, I can immediately smell the oily rosemary and the musky lavender.  Herbs have such staying power in the memory & so does music.  Now I’m thinking of the song  “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme”   Until I started writing for this website, I didn’t realize how often a song will run in my head when I’m viewing certain things & am in a creative state of mind.  It’s all connected for me, art, music, scent & memory.
