I hope you are all doing well!

Things have been a lot more quiet on my side this week. I’ve started working on a new painting, and I’m excited as well as intimidated (once again) by this new plant friend. Here’s a hint to help you guess which one it is:

It is a native (to Canada and elsewhere) Spring bloom that takes advantage of the lack of leaves on trees to access light and to complete its entire life cycle before becoming dormant until the following Spring.

Can you guess what it is?

I’m struggling a bit with managing my energy levels at the moment, so this one is a short and sweet newsletter! I’ll be back with more content next week, don’t fear 🙂 In the meantime, I’m sipping on a matcha latte to get me through the afternoon because I really want to work on my painting. It’s always difficult to select what’s essential and what can wait, but I find that identifying just one task to complete is helpful. Today’s task: complete the first layers of the plant’s leaves. So, I’ll be working in green this afternoon!

Once thing is for sure, this little lady knows how to rest!

New in store

The lily of the valley painting is available as a greeting card! 3 versions are available, so I hope you’ll go take a look!


Beauty is in the details, some say. It couldn’t be truer with Slinkachu’s miniature work!

A Small Treat
