This is how I have worked for many years:
In the Winter I work on paintings from the photos that I took in the Summer. When I yearn for GREENS and BLUES with layers of SUNSHINE it is this time of year. I am not inspired by the vast mounds of snow that has accumulated over the past weeks or the interesting blue shadows or sparkle of ice crystals, even though I find them enchanting sometimes. I’ll be adding the lush leaves and curly sprouts to this piece next.
