As the gray days of winter drag on, I'm thinking ahead to sunny days and spring greens. Just about anything that's green and growing lifts my spirits (excepting mold and slime of course)!
I wish I could buy carrots at the store with the leafy green stems still on so I could paint from a real subject, but my grocery store chops off all the pretty leaves. I painted this carrot painting from an online photo. It sill works!
What gets you through winter? I could not live without my watercolors, warm blankets, and hot chocolate.
