I find my work is going through a "green period". Probably influenced by the wonderful greens I am missing from the Northwest. My artist-child spirit needed to purchase four ivies for my studio! It was an obsession I had to fulfill! Now I am carefully tending them to keep them healthy and alive.
My drafting table is covered with a lovely green floral print, covered with clear heavy vinyl. Also sitting on the top of the corner hutch is a gorgeous 55+ year old Christmas cactus that belonged to my fraternal Grandmother! It bloomed profusely over the holidays!
You can see items that were set up on my table for a very green still life, too!
The picture below shows the kind of winter we are having here in Utah...
Actually it's been a beautiful winter, however most of us are looking forward to Spring. I have been taking workshops and enjoying sketching, doing pen & ink and also watercolor. The little painting on the side of the blog was influenced by a quote on the LDS Church Instagram feed. It said
"Think small and simple."
It struck a chord with me - Not wanting to copy it directly, I looked it up in French...The French language makes everything sound prettier, don't you think?

I was happy to read that Green is the color of the year! I have no idea who calls the shots on that, but it works for me!
Thanks for stopping by!
