Snowdrops and Snowflakes stand for hope and consolation. I’ve deliberately painted both of these beautiful little flowers for “S” because I could only grow Snowflakes in South Africa, and now I am able to only grow Snowdrops here in Canada. In both cases they are the very first harbingers of Spring and seeing them, one knows that Winter is now being ushered out. Luckily Swallowtails are found both here and there.
I have used Black Ink and Derwent and Faber Castell Watercolour pencils on 8” x 10”, 125 lbs Hahnemuhle Bamboo mixed media, acid-free paper.
