This time of year, it’s all about perseverance. For the first workshop of this In the Studio with Rayna Lo series, we find inspiration in the hearty winter blossoms and evergreens that persevere in the winter landscape and add color to the seasonal Courtyard display here at the Gardner Museum. Create a botanical sketch as you head into the studio with Rayna Lo.
