“Yellow is a very favorable vibration for mental or intellectual activity. It promotes a clear state of mind. Yellow heightens your awareness and helps depression, sadness, or any kind of despondency with life. Yellow vibration foods are pineapples, bananas, grapefruit, lemons, and corn.” 


– Tae Yun Kim

Deep sleeps the Winter,
Cold, wet, and grey;
Surely all the world is dead;
Spring is far away.
Wait! the world shall waken;
It is not dead, for lo,
The Fair Maids of February
Stand in the snow!


Cicely Mary Barker ‘The Snowdrop Fairy’ (1895-1973) – English Illustrator and Author



 February's first painting is a little flower study again, inspired by the "Simple Things" section at Jean Haines Online Art School. www.watercolourinspiration.com
