All the snow is melted, the sun is out and the colors in the garden are starting to get really good. The forsythia and the first daffodils opened yesterday. One more snow??? we'll see.
Thursday we drove up to Chico Hot Springs (near Yellowstone Park). The morning drive was not good as the roads were slushy, lots of cars and four wheel drive vehicles in the ditch. Coming home the next afternoon was totally different.
Along the way i noticed the color coming up in the osiers along the river, and the first sandhill cranes are back!
Saturday in the studio was great. i felt focused for the first time in a while and really had a good time painting.
posted below are some results, interspersed with a few finished pieces.
It is all out of sequence, sorry. [i have a lot to learn about this blogging. For example, where should i respond to comments? in the comments section, privately, or here on the "front page' of the blog? what are the protocals i need to know? TIA for any helpful hints.]
enjoy this day!
