Winter Garden

Still Life Plants, 2011
Junk table plants make a garden in winter. It's not the same as being outside but by trying to keep up to the bloom cycle it feels similar in spirit at least. The working time is longer and spans a few days as the light moves past so quickly in late winter.

Our days are getting longer now and soon the temps will be above zero long enough to get back to favourite spots. We skied back through Mount Uniacke last weekend and found water on the ground moving under the snow which will make beautiful patterns to capture as the spring quickens. I have canvas stretched and ready to go and my paint bag is loaded.
