spring flowers

Denver is blooming with an extravagant array of spring flowers.  The children and I have been talking about the seasonal changes and the accompanying color, variety and beauty.  Today we decided to clip a few branches from our beloved crab-apple trees in front of the school and bring them into the studio to create a still life for inspiration.  We spent the next several studio hours examining the flowers and recording what we saw on Bristol board, using black sharpies, 6B pencils and water-soluble oil pastels.

A day spend in the company of children and flowers is a day well spent.
