I am continuing to will it to be warmer weather up here lately (with these hot colors I've been painting with!).  I think it's working. I actually went outside without a jacket on and didn't freeze! I'm guessing it must have been in the upper 40s? Our own tulips are about 4 or 5 inches out of the ground so far! I'm hoping they'll come up in a beautiful display like they have the last several years! It's such an incredible sight to see! Don't you just love it when Spring really starts to show her face? It'll be time to start digging in the dirt once again!

What wonderful spring-like colors. Great job!
You made me feel happy just looking at your flowers but I particularly like the blue and white vase

Tell me about it, FINALLY warmed up here today and oh how nice to see bright sunshine for a change. Talking about bright: WOW! The evenly saturated hues give this one an almost abstract feeling. Very happy colors!

Thanks Diane! It's been a recent goal to get yet even more brave with wilder color in my work. The thought it to just throw "tentative" right out the window! We'll see where it leads to!!! :-)
