The defiant ones

The lazy gardener took the hosta out of the clay pots in the fall but never planted them in the ground. They survived — roots exposed to the elements — all winter long.  This spring they leafed out again, in defiance of the lazy gardener. That alone makes them worth repotting and sketching.

  6. I read/examine your blog every day, enchanted that you find the paintable in many of the things I ignore or just walk past. I also refer to your work to help me simplify handling of backgrounds, skies, etc. So grateful, and inspired, that you post every day. Thank you.
    I did purchase an Eric Michaels easel, as I have about worn out my old Anderson watercolor easel.
