We just spent a much needed break in the sunshine state.
A visit to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is always enchanting and
I had to share a few pictures with you. No doubt they will inspire some new work.
Anyhoo, I am back in the studio looking out on six more inches of snow!
Hoping spring will come sooner than later. Savoring the memories of the last few days.

If you have a moment,  hop on over to Storey Publishing's blog.
 They posted a little Q & A with me and are having a book + print giveaway!
Have a great week all!

I'll never forget my first visit to Selby Gardens - escaping from where I then lived in the Chicago area to find some sunshine. Now I live blocks from the gardens, and am so glad you got to visit and recharge your winter-worn batteries with so much natural visual beauty, and artistic inspiration - can't wait to see how it translates into your always-amazing work!

Kandice: you are so lucky! We visit Selby whenever we are in Sarasota! Such a beautiful place to live!
