I have been working with my inspiration boards and also a big, beautiful flowers of the world book and creating sketches. I have also done some paintings but I am still waiting... waiting to do one I really LOVE and want to share up close. I really like the looseness of the sketches but it seems when I go for the painting the looseness gets lost in translation. We took down our tree and put away all of the Christmas decorations. It feels good to get a fresh start.
