Illustration Friday - Prepare

{Watercolor, 2012}
Shortly after Christmas I started to get seed catalogs in the mail. In the winter, it's always nice to prepare for the gardening season. I am itching to get my hands dirty again! I'll probably plant tomatoes, peas, lettuce and radishes like always. I am considering planting a few soy beans too so that we can enjoy some edamame at home! Oh, and maybe some eggplants, onions and potatoes too! I also love to add a few new flowers to my beds every year too! My husband built raised beds for us a few years ago and we made some PVC frames that can either hold netting (to keep deer and company out!) or plastic for cold frames. I'm definitely going to be prepared for spring either way!

Lovely illustration, full of promises and expectations. Getting prepared to plant new seeds is also something I am looking forward to.

What a beautiful illustration! I love the way your line weight and color choices convey the depth from the inside to the outside, from the warm to the cold. By the way, I planted eggplant last year...the plants are so beautiful!
