Today was so lovely out! A warm 60 degrees and clear skies!
The whole of my town was out enjoying the break from winter weather.
In fact my family was so thrilled, we grabbed a tiny TV and spent the day watching European soccer matches and sunbathing on our back deck. At one point I actually fell asleep in the warm sunshine. hmmm.. it was a break we all needed.
Taken with the taste of coming spring I began to work on this sharpie drawing of Ivy.
I so enjoyed feeling out the organic leaflets, curves and sprouts!
Tonight as I watch the Grammys I plan to fill up the whole page. I'm starting to think small objects caught up in the web of vines would be interesting. Tea cups, keys, feathers, small bugs.. etc. It feels so good to just jump right in with little forethought on the whole picture. This Monday I plan to re-focus on my attention on the Green House Painting. That blasted huge monster! As with every big piece I create it's a joy and a pain to paint. Hopefully the end result will pay off. until then,
