"When you go out to paint, try to forget what objects you have before you.... merely think here is a little square of blue, here an oblong of pink, here a streak of yellow, and paint it just as it looks to you."  -Claude Monet

Saturday afternoon I came home to paint in my own front yard. The new tulips we planted last fall are in full bloom and are the most amazing thing. I'm hoping the rainy weather we are having today doesn't beat them up too badly. I'd like to get another painting in of them.
I can tell already- this is going to be an interesting year in the garden! Meaning- lots of fun painting here! And even though it was gray and dreary out all of Saturday, the colors in the garden are still rich and wonderful.

However, here's a closeup of those tulips in the sunshine on Monday:
In the meantime, there's buds forming on the rose bushes, and it won't be long after that, the hydrangeas will be blooming! This is my favorite time of year!
