watching paint dry... hoping for spring

welcome to paint party Friday.
Just a wee painting/doodle for you today.
I admit, I am not feeling hopeful, so this came to me, in the midst of yet another snowstorm, that Spring will come and hopefully we'll all be here to see it.
I'm showing tilted images so you can see the pretty metallic paint from finetec.
It's awesome!
I used KOI watercolors, a #8 round brush, finetec gold and silver watercolor, and pigma .05

I am excited that the Sketchbook Revival is back again starting on March 23.
Free lessons, two a day from accomplished artists. It's what started me back drawing and painting last year. The first lesson now available early is on how to create an art journal, available when you sign up.  Having experienced the growth last year, I have high hopes for this workshop to start!!!
Sign up or learn more here:

this is one of the most important TED talks I've experienced for creativity... please watch and tell me what you think...
