My first daffodils..

Last year I grew my first daffodils, such a beautiful flower.  They were the first flowers to pop up in my flower beds and boy were they a welcome sight.  Right about now I get cabin fever and start dreaming of my flowers and gardens.  It's dreary and wet outside right now so I thought today we could use some sunshine in the form of bright yellow daffodils.  
 I love to photograph picked flowers because you never know when you might want to paint or draw them.
 About this time last year I was gathering up some art supplies.  I kept them in this old tool box which I've outgrown now.
 This was one of the very first entries in my moleskin journal. I wasn't quite sure to go about it so I just started.  Such a concept.  Just start. I had to tell myself that for years and whaddya know, it clicked for me last year.
 Those first sketches are scary and probably not my best. But I'm so glad I can look back on these first pages of my art.
 Any art is good practice.  Practice is art.  I have to keep remembering that.  Those first wobbly sketches were part of my journey and I've come a good, long way since then.
Happy Friday everyone!  Some have asked about my Instagram.  My username is Mish Wooderson if you want to look me up.
