"In the Woods" by Linda Hampton Smith. Acrylic and Gouache on Paper
Although the trees limbs are still bare and there's a chill in the air, the soil has finally softened. I've been happily working away dans le jardin - edging my garden beds with stones I collect from the woods. The effect pleases me. This will be a special summer. We recently cut down many trees due to having become, over the years, overgrown by moss. I anticipate for the very first time in this home setting: La lumière du soleil. And a ton of sunshine-friendly flowers to follow!
"L'amour de la Fleur" by Linda Hampton Smith. Watercolor on Paper
Which brings to mind: Le Tournesol. I've never, jamais, ever been able to grow sunflowers because of the shade. Now here's my chance! I've been studying seed packets in the stores. La variété est grande.
I'm envisioning Provence in my own backyard!
