On these cold, snowy days of winter in Minnesota, one needs some color to lift our spirits and warm our souls. I looked at some exotic and tropical flowers for inspiration to help me through these past few weeks. Sitting indoors with my colored pencils and a cup of hot tea, I imagined these wonderful fantasy botanicals. I am hoping they get selected as part of a proposal I submitted. They sure brightened my day so and I would love to share the finished pieces and brighten others days as well. Wish me luck!
