I am supposed to be drawing for my upcoming art show in September. What with the distractions of a newly unemployed boyfriend and spring in the air, I have not produced very many pieces.
The crocuses are coming up in my lawn (I decided to plant them there instead of in my garden) and the raccoons are out of hibernation and have raided the sunflower seeds that were intended for the birds. As much as I love spring, somehow the long shadows in winter inspire me. A temperature of minus 30C also has a way of inspiring one to stay indoors. Above is a colour pencil drawing I did on a cold day in February a few years ago.
