Effortless Breath, 2008
Watercolor, 5 x 7 inches 

Now the most beauteous moment of spring is upon us. The dirt in my new raised vegetable garden is prepared and the seeds will go in tomorrow morning. All the windows are open and I look out to flower trees filled with bird song.

I'm reminded of a short series I made four years ago when I was in the throes of my Landscape into Art project and deep into Degas landscapes. This series is titled Revival. It's the perfect time of year to repost it in its entirety here.

It's also the perfect time to post for my Online Drawing and Watercolor Course students who are now entering Practice Camp where we plan, create and execute individual series after the long haul of six months of study. We're all very excited! It's a good time to plant and nurture seeds.
