A while ago I posted about the Relief Society birthday celebration I helped put on, and I had some wonderful responses to the watercolor Earth I used. So today I’m sharing four versions–a simple plain version and three with quotes to suit different tastes. I never get tired of the fresh colors and the way the oceans seem to be moving.
The watercolor Earth was such a fun painting. I sat at our dining room table while my girls had their watercolors out and together we worked on our projects. I noticed that for several days afterward, Saige was drawing and painting Earth too. It was fun to see her observe my painting and then emulate what I was doing.
I love the simplicity and how well-suited the earth is for watercolors. It’s just a natural fit for the medium. It’s far from perfect, but I’m pleased with how it turned out.Click here for the Earth watercolor
The first quote I thought of is a scripture, and I had to offer it as a printable. But since not everyone is religious, I wanted to make another version. And can I tell you that there are SO MANY great quotes about earth or the world? It was really hard to narrow it down to only three. So to start with:

And for all you travel bugs, this Tolkien quote is for you:

and when you want to think about a hopeful and peaceful world, you can sing along with these song lyrics (in a growly Louis Armstrong impersonation of course).Click here for the Wonderful World watercolor
I hope you enjoy them–I’ve loved having my watercolor earth framed and sitting with a couple of globes around the house.
