Even though we have had the “Winter That Never Was” here in Ohio, it is wonderful to see things starting to turn green and little buds come out on the trees and little flowers poke their heads out of the dirt. Since we spent last month organizing our studio and supplies, we are feeling rejuvenated and ready to go out and paint.
Of course, around here it is still too cool for plein air painting even though the last few days have been teasing us. Now is a good time to stock up on supplies during these Spring sales. That way we will be “good to go” when the time comes. Don’t forget after our reorganization of our studio last month to at least straighten up once a week. You will feel more like “diving in” to work with a neater studio.
Now is also a good time to photograph some of those Spring and Easter flowers for future paintings. Be sure to keep a file of things you want to do, so that when the mood of inspiration strikes you will be ready.
