Rites of Spring
This week here in Vermont, we had a stretch of unseasonably hot weather. It was in the upper 80s (26.6C), which is unheard of for this time of the year. I think the snow is done for the year, but if you look closely at the photos above, you can still see a little strip of the white stuff at the top of the mountain.
With the change in the weather and the arrival of the Spring Equinox, there come many opportunities to go outside and be inspired at all the beauty that surrounds us.
Most of my paintings have a direct influence from the natural world, and now that I am in new surroundings here in Vermont, I'm sure the work will slowly evolve and go in a new direction. While I can't force this to happen, I can feel it coming on and look forward to it.
Along with all of my other art-related projects, I continue to do regular guest writing over at the Wall Spin blog. This week, the discussion is about small works of art, and why some might prefer them over something on a larger scale. I hope you enjoy it!
I hate to be repetitive, but I still have a few tee shirts left from my most recent run. They are limited in number, so if you haven't gotten one yet, now is the time, as they won't last for long!
Thanks to those of you who have ordered and received a shirt! If you would, please send me a photo of you modeling it, so I can feature you in an upcoming post.
Until next week, I wan't to thank all of you for stopping by and giving me your support, it means a lot to me!
Have a great weekend!
