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.

Since my pictures are large, colorful and unframed, and since museum walls are usually immense and formidable, there is the danger that the pictures relate themselves as decorative areas to the walls. This would be a distortion of their meaning, since the pictures are intimate and intense, and are the opposite of what is decorative.
