Iowa Green

Welcome to a new week.  It seems that the first signs of new life are happening at last.  Spring has swept her joyful wand across Iowa and I am finally beginning to see green, new buds and growth in my garden.

I love this time of year, full of promise and renewal, and the never ending wonder of the cycle of life.  Finally, I will have more days to sit in my garden and sketch.

Of course, the leaves are never straight, their unfurling means they are small and curled.  Such beauties that are sometimes tricky to sketch.  But practice helps.

This sketchbook page was done in watercolor and ink.
I hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you.  Take your sketchbook wherever you go.

Thanks for checking in. xx
