While my last journal was about the unusual snowstorm that struck the Seattle area--our March was one of the driest on record! Mother Nature is In A MOOD and we are so lucky to bear witness to the beauty. Spring green buds are everywhere, cherry trees are already "snowing" with tiny heart-shaped petals, the birds are rehearsing their symphony! This painting was done in a fun workshop with Darrell Anderson at the Winslow Art Center. In addition, our art group has already been outdoor painting en plein air. We are "tuning up" to get back in shape for the rigorous sport of painting on location! Thanks for being a fan!
