We’re getting some warm days interspersed with days of rain, so the plants are all happy and growing.  When I walk outside, I am surrounded by flowers begging me to sit down and paint them.  I don’t mind obliging!

Spring Means Violets

Spring Means Violets, watercolor, 3.5″ x 5″

When my daughter was little, there was nothing she liked better than to go out in the spring and fill her little hands with bunches of violets.  Now that she is grown and has daughters of her own… she still goes out and picks violets!
