"Orchids in January, 2014"
pen & ink with watercolor, in small moleskine sketchbook
January, 2014 ~ Utrecht, Netherlands

The month of January means I'm usually struggling to reorganize my tiny studio (i.e., throw out useless stuff that I squirrel away for no apparent reason). Consequently, I have little desire to do much drawing or painting ... or anything. The situation is the same this January.

However, I did stop to draw one of my new orchids in my moleskine I've dedicated to "Flowers Plants & Trees". The orchid was a Christmas gift and hopefully it will be "happy" in the place I've chosen for it in my living room; which at this point in time, is a far better place than in my studio! :D



tot ziens,
Judy
