Think spring!

Yesterday I was walking around downtown Boston at lunchtime and it was beautiful outside. I could really feel spring coming. Yesterday's weather had a little bit of everything actually-rain in the morning, snow in the evening, but in-between, it was gorgeous.

I haven't been too productive lately so I don't yet have a new painting to share. In the meantime, it's time to start thinking spring. I love this watercolor painting "A Garden in a Sea of Flowers" by Ross Turner .
Thanks to Kim for figuring out what painting I was talking about by my weak description ("It feels like you are sitting in a field of wildflowers") and where I had seen it (at a Boston MFA watercolor exhibit a few years back). I think I had this in mind when I did this palette knife painting of wildflowers on Martha's Vineyard. I shouldn't put them near each other, because mine pales by comparison. But I hope that they both help you to Think Spring!
