Midwinter can feel like an empty time in the studio because the subjects I most love to draw, low-growing plants with interesting leaves, are typically dormant or covered by snow.
But this month I’m feeling lucky (and the studio feels full)! Because there’s a green patch of yarrow in our garden that’s stayed accessible between snows.
I am in love with this plant because it’s feather-like leaves have a branchy, tree-like quality.
Wondering how many days there are until spring? Let this countdown tell you. (As of this writing, it says sixty-one days to go.)
For winter walks I love this trail that loops around the National Center for Atmospheric Reseach (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado. Too rattlesnakey in summer, in winter it’s perfect: easy to get to, lots to see, and short enough to manage with our dog (loves a hike/hates the cold) on a darkening afternoon.
And to take a break.
How about you?
