"Ah, But Were It Spring" oil on masonite 6x6"

A funny thing happened on the way to the studio. My gears got all twisted and torqued. This was not at all what I had planned and yet it felt very right. Everyone in Seattle keeps talking like Spring is here. I say it is not so. My garden journel suggests that we have a ways to go. Some years that "ways" is riddled with random snow. However, there are crocus in my yard. The tips of other bulbs are squeezing up through the cold soil. Just for a few hours it was good to think like the masses.

Beautiful, Sharman!

That is just beautiful - and working with bright, bright greens like that is difficult!
And yes, here too we went from 65 degrees to three inches of slushy snow and a freeze - and we'll be up to 70 by the weekend!

Buds were saved from the freeze by the coating of slush - and iris are greening up like your painting.
