Black-eyed SusansPosted: December 23, 2013
A few months ago I was complaining to my neighbour that I still had to cut down all the perennials in my garden before the snow fell. Her suggestion was great. She said, “Leave ’em. They look great poking out of the snow and then you can sketch them.” This sketch was also inspired by my friend Jean who sent me photos of the snow accumulation on the roof of his house, both before and after he knocked lots of it off. I started noticing the layers of snow, a bit like rings on a tree, that were piling up on the evergreen outside my door. So from the comfort of my house I painted this.
