I’ve finally settled on a pallet for this season and painted this little guy, sleeping under the flowers. My hellebore grow and bloom through the snow in the winter – I dig down and pick a few flowers for a vase on my window sill to remind myself that there is life, even in the cold, dark days of winter! The boreal owl is a little guy and seldom seen in the northern forests of Europe and America – I’d love to actually see one some day!
Here’s my colors for my winter palette this year – all muted tones of blues, greens, pinks, and browns. I’m starting another painting today with them!
