Whenever my ramblings take me thru the Hudson Valley…I like to stop at Battenfeld's in Red Hook, NY for some fresh blooms.

Nothing more inviting than greenhouses full of Hybrid Anemones & Rananculus in the middle of winter.

You learn to paint & then you paint to learn.Part of the joy of painting is experimenting with new art supply. After all these years, my go to medium is still watercolor. Sometimes I choose to start a new subject just so I can use my Winsor & Newton watercolors & my #3 Kolinsky sable brush from Utrecht. This sable brush has the right snap for a fluid wash & the perfect point for building up the fuzzy fur on this little kittie.
