Portrait of a gardener

I pulled out my sketch pad and started drawing, while looking out the window at all the snow. What sort of garden drawing does snow inspire? Well, as I drew and thought, I realized: Mostly, I'm dreaming about spring. I'm dreaming about May... So I drew a picture of Hortense Hoelove, (aka Carol) in the snow, with her hoe, dreaming of May.



Happy dreaming everyone!

Keep drawing... Only five months till spring!

Carol said...

Wow, I'm flattered! It's pretty good, too, except I almost always where green. But I did wear a purple sweater the other day. Thanks for the great drawing!
