In the paper they mentioned January as the ‘hibernating month’, and yes January can be a very dull and grey, with little sunshine or color. I personally c r a v e longer days and warm breezes, the time when our rooftop is left open and the wind can blow in the mild scent of the eucalyptus tree that is up there… Having a cappuccino on the roof, the sounds of the city floating by, a gentle sun on my face… aaahh, still 4 months away.
So! in the mean time best look for alternatives for that warming feeling, and this morning I noticed these wonderful still life paintings hanging in the school. I think the art teacher is on exactly the right path to beat the winter blues, by doing fruit paintings.
Fruit, isn’t it wonderfully exotic? The colors of summer!
The paintings are made by different groups, ages ranging from about 7 to 12 years.
