Welcome! Hope you see some artwork that pleases you, if not now, maybe next time…

February art: Aquarelle in the coffeeshop.

Still digging deep to jiggle my art back up, I sat in the coffee shop this cold and miserably grey morning, squiggling lines left and right.  After a while I gave up, closed the Stillman & Birn and rove to the garden center, where I loaded my cart with shrubs and trees and perennials. Everybody else was buying forced bulbs for their homes. I was probably the single person in France out in the cold rain, behaving only as one should in the midst of spring…going out on the planting. Well. It helped. I feel I can take on some more sketching this evening…make my hands work while my head is in spring, planting.

    • Hehe…Jennifer…that is funny! Well, I stocked upon so many plants and suddenly the frost arrived…so planting has to wait.

  2. Loved the comment above. I have just restarted yet again, after seeing your previous veggie sketch. I’m sure you did the right thing going to the garden centre. I’m sure the shrubs & plants you bought will grow well , because they had your undivided attention.
