This late-season, record-breaking snowfall had effectively stalled my springtime revelries, but I’ve just found something that might restore it.
The March “Pastel Strokes” on WetCanvas! offers these two springtime photos by Paula Wilson to inspire a pastel painting this month. Paula writes that the first was taken at the Kaufmann Memorial Gardens in Kansas
City, Mo., and the second at a cottage garden close to
Alma, Kansas, in the Flint Hills.
Thanks, Paula. I’m thankful that when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate, there’s always photography to supply the images we wish we were seeing outside!
If you’re inspired to paint from these photos, you can post your finished artwork on WetCanvas! To see guidelines for participating, click here.
