From my sketchbook....

These long dreary winter days seem to go on and on and on...BUT, coffee, music, and positive thinking have me gearing up for warmer days!  I have been sketching lots and lots of flowers and all kinds of spring and summer elements.  Recently, I sketched these sweet little flowers and berries and quickly had to add color to them.  Pinterest is my go to place for color collections.  I have a board of my favorite palettes that I draw inspiration from.  I ended up pulling colors from about 5 inspiration palette collections and I LOVE the results! Please let me know which one is your favorite?

Dreaming of warmer days

It is February, so the COLD and SNOWY forecast that so many people are experiencing is not a surprise.  However, today I was dreaming of warmer days and looking forward to the sweet birdies song and the feel of lush grass between my toes.  I started sketching trees and birds and quickly turned my drawings into a fun little summertime scene. I added this great quote from Henry David Thoreau as a reminder of the beauty all around us.  Happy Sunday Everyone!
