Barbara Muir © 2012I walked my dog today in a chilly rain. We walked
by gardens missing their snow covering, green
leaves that have grown, frozen, grown -- and
have no idea what's going on. This winter is an
odd one so far. Tomorrow we should have snow again.
But I started working on a drawing
of peonies, from a photo of the glorious flowers my
neighbour lets me cut every year -- the perfect shade
of pink, the smell like heaven. This is not an iPad
drawing. And it may turn into a coloured pencil
rendering, but I haven't had time in the past few weeks
to go that deep. For now, I like the line.
Have a following-a-glorious-line day.
