I’ve been inspired by the book Paris Letters to take up watercolor painting! I was surprised to find that I had most of what I needed already. After a quick trip to the craft store I was ready to paint.


With the warm days and abundant spring sunshine, there was endless inspiration budding in the greenhouse. I gathered all my supplies (paint, brushed, paper, paper towels and water) and set up shop on one of the greenhouse tables. So like Monet and his water lilies, I would embark on capturing the bountiful beauty of nature that was sprawling out before me.

Step outside today and see what inspires you!
