Winter Pansey Garden

>

Welcome. I am so happy that you stopped by. We are having a break from all of the rain in Southern California. In spite of our unusually cold weather the sun is shining and the sky is blue - a perfect day for me to invite you to join me in my little garden to see what is blooming. I usually drink tea, however, when the weather is in the low 50's I like to make hot chocolate - I made a cup just for you.







Looks like Bentley found a pot of Inpatients that survived the frost.



I planted Winter pansies last month and they are blooming in spite of the cold - they loved all of the rain. We plant them in the Winter as they do not do well in the Summer heat in Southern California.





I love painting outside in " en Plein Air" (French word for in open air) and want to paint pansies in Terra cotta pots. Let's look for inspiration.


Finding inspiration . . . . .







Looks like Bentley, my helpful studio assistant, found some terra cotta pots.

There . . . .










Everywhere . . . . . .



I ended up painting on a very small canvas since it was getting cold and the clouds started blowing in off the ocean. Looks like we are in for more welcome rain. Everyone hopes it will help end our bad drought. I hope those of you who are in really cold climates or snowed in enjoyed getting out with me enjoying the pansies.







Thank you for visiting. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate everyone who visits me, leaves me a comment and follows my blog. Please leave me a comment if you would like to see me paint something special or have any questions.

Have a lovely week. Blessings, Erin
