But there are a few other things happening in the great indoors this month. I love the first page of a new sketchbook- it always holds the promise of a new chapter of productivity in the studio! My first page has a quote that inspired me, "to be surprised after a day of anxious painting is a joy". Forgive me as I have forgotten the source!
The days here have been filled with rain and sloppy mud, a bit of warmer mornings, boiling sap, chopping ice, teaching classes, studio time, sewing and french lessons! ( I am visiting Paris soon!). Below are some images of a larger piece that is still evolving. It is feeling a bit more like a landscape than most of my usual compositions. I think I am just embracing the ever present color white this spring.
