A Dash of Spring Color

After beginning last week with temps in single digits, frozen pipes, school closings, numb fingers and a gorgeous blanket of snowfall, the week ended on a note of teasing spring warmth with temps in the mid 60s, blue skies and sun bright enough to rid one of any winter blues or cabin fever.

To celebrate this small burst of warm weather, I was inspired to splash about some bright colors and crack open the seed catalogs. Though our furry weather predictor, the ground hog, saw his shadow and says we're due for another six weeks of winter, and quite truthfully I wouldn't mind another snowfall or two, I was ever grateful to have a bit of warmth again and the sunshine cheering the landscape.

Absolutely GORGEOUS Lin -- the colors are so bright and beautiful on this snowed-in day here in KY.

I love your new color palette and the way you've let the wc glide down the page under the flowers. The flowers themselves are beautiful in their shapes and colors.

Thanks for the breath of Spring for what promises to be a very bad winter week here.
Hugs,
Lorraine

Ah Lin - this painting just feeds my soul. Beautiful spring colors and it as if you planted seeds in my winter heart today. We are getting ready for another 4-6 inches and below normal temperatures in the single digits.
Oh who cares when I can come visit your lovely paintings. Bless You and have a great day.
