I usually consider that spring has arrived when our neighbor’s gorgeous saucer magnolia tree blooms, and that happened about February 7th this year — a bit early, I think.  That’s also usually the same time that the redbuds start to bloom, and they bloomed beautifully, but now the blooms are gone.  I didn’t even take any pictures of those this year, for no good reason(!).

But it has seemed to be cooler this spring than other years of late, and I know some of you have still been getting some snow!  So, in celebration of a gorgeous spring for everyone (in this hemisphere), here’s another new painting.

What we take to be the ‘same color’ when it has a vague edge is perceived completely differently from when it has a defined edge.
