Bog

I've decided that the only way to make it through this last stretch of winter  is to visualize warmer weather.
Goodbye dear January! It was a nice start, but now I'm cold.

Wonderful!!

I'm doing a similar thing - since the sun made a temporary appearance today I tried to ignore the 55 inches of snow, bought a magnolia branch and a cherry twig which I'm going to photograph - and stare at, pretending they came naturally because it's spring....

Thank you ladies! 55 inches of snow! Yikes. Okay, I'll stop whining about the six inches or so we had here, which I really do love (see previous post) for its beauty, but I'm so over winter!

Beautiful work, I like how the waterplants are linked to each other and how their colours give this work it's lightness.

This is a particularly attractive drawing Holly. Whatever January has done to annoy you has been well worth it for an outcome like this!

I really love all the patterns going on with this one. Sort of reminds me of an old tapestry.
