This is one of the most beautiful times of year where I live--after months of searching the chilly, brown landscape for any sign of green, suddenly we see it everywhere in abundance, and every day there is something new to exclaim over. Our property is called Wildapple, and the apple trees are now in bloom, along with lilacs, bleeding hearts, columbine, and so many others.
I spent the weekend wandering between garden and studio and sitting in the sun. Planting a few flowers and herbs seemed as important as painting. But once I did make to the studio, it was good. I felt myself becoming unstuck in certain ways...the cleaner, more open studio space, the spring air, and the energy I still feel from teaching my last workshop, all seem in sync. I'm not ready to post any photos yet, but there are lots things in the works.
