Priming Panels & Buying Fresh Flowers

Though the days are getting longer and lighter —and thankfully, clocks spring forward over the weekend— this long, cold winter just keeps hanging on. And with walkways and a drive frozen solid with glare ice, it’s hard to get outside for a walk, never mind a hike or run.

There’s so much to do in the studio right now, and that little bit of motivational, morning exercise is sorely missed.  In order to stay focused during the more mundane days and grey weather, I continue to invest in fresh flowers. This week’s selection: hyacinth. The soft, sweet fragrance helped push me through the first wave of panel priming today. Smalls are all set and ready for back frames, and now it’s time to get started on some larger sizes. Thank goodness for flowers.
