8" x 6"
oil on canvas board

Good morning.  I have not been posting lately as I have been getting started in my garden and trying to clean out my house from it's winter doldrums.  Since spring is rolling in faster than I would like, I hope to get outside and paint this week.  
I find spring is such a thrilling time of the year, I really don't know what to do first.  All the crocuses I planted sprang up suddenly one day last week, the forsythia is out and the trees are starting to get that rosy hue that lasts such a short time but is so very beautiful.  The weeds are also thriving and some must be removed before they go to seed and weeding becomes a battle as the seeds are projected into your eyes as you pull them out, and of course all over the garden. 
The view in this painting is where I will be for the next few days and weeks, down on the ground smelling nature come alive again and reveling in the renewal of life, with Bay somewhere near by and Jake pretending he doesn't care not far off.
