A larger painting today. Spring has sprung at last. I was thinking what suckers we who live in northerly climates are. We go through one of the toughest winters in recent history; everyone's tired of it and starting to complain bitterly; threatening to move to Hawaii and never look back. Then suddenly the hills and fields sprout glorious green grass, cherry trees load up with blossoms, meadows are dotted with daffodils...and for that great kindness of nature, all is forgiven.
