When is Spring Going to Get here!!!!

Yesterday I got a glimpse of spring by attending a very fun plein air session at the Garfield Conservatory in Chicago. It was my first visit to the Conservatory. What a breath of fresh air stepping into a place filled with massive ferns and flowers growing almost as if it were summertime in the city. A group of us went down there early in the morning in a late winter storm with over 4 inches of snow coming down as we traveled to this fantastic colorful place.

Here is a couple of watercolor and ink paintings that I did of the fern room and of the flowers blooming.

Next plein air is the Volo Auto Museum, which should be interesting and lots to photograph and paint.
