watercolor words by rocketrictic
watercolor words by rocketrictic

By Gabrielle.

These watercolor words by Rocketrictic melt me.

This one (which was inspired by this song) reminds me of that moment when kids suddenly turn from wanting to go anywhere and everywhere you’re going to the point where you can’t imagine if you’ll ever score even one second alone again…to the age when they give you a kiss and fly off to do their own thing. Bittersweet, isn’t it?

A collection of Rocketrictic prints are here.

P.S. — Do you enjoy collecting words?

Yes! Here is the link:

And thank you for reminding me. I meant to link to both the flickr page and the shop page. Just updated the post.

I like the first one. I feel like I constantly trying to simplify my life.

I have this dream that I will make an illustrated book of all the quotes I’ve collected over the years….but the collection is large enough now to make the task Herculean, if not Sisyphean. Sigh: there are just so very many beautiful words.
