Snow days bring February flowers, Linda Young Watercolors


Checkered Life, 10" x 10" Watercolor, by Linda Young
 
With snow that seems to have no end in sight and the cold chill of the winter winds sending me to my warm studio, I pulled some reference photos of flowers to get my inspiration.  At least, in my mind I could imagine the warmer days of spring as I put paint to the paper.

The flower grew in my garden last year and the poppies from my mother's garden.  I admire the work of artist, Karlyn Holman and used a little bit of the checkered background to add some interest to this piece.

Thank you Sue and Sharon. It's winter and time to try out new ideas, sometimes...

Your flowers make me think of spring and that's a good thing!
