6"by6" pastel on Canson Paper $100
I visited the farmer's market, it's in a greenhouse at the local garden center. I really just wanted to be in the greenhouse. It was worth traipsing through the snow and ice for a few minutes of heat and humidity. I saw this tomato plant acting like it was August and I had to take it home - Tomatoes in January! and then I realized that in many parts of the country it wouldn't be unusual to have tomatoes in winter!
There is a blizzard predicted for tomorrow, not much snow but fierce winds. SNOW DAY!!! Yes teachers like them as much as kids. I will be sorry in June when I have to make it up but I'm hoping to be able to stay home and paint.
