Orange Slices

Wow! Spring is finally here, at least for a few days. It has been above freezing for a couple of days in a row.  There were lots of new challenges with this painting - the glass plate, the orange slices, and I really had to fiddle with the edge between the pink and the pale grey on the background, so it wasn't so hard.

Turquoise vase

The days are getting longer, the sun is brighter, and I can feel the energy increasing in the environment.  But the last days of winter are bittersweet - I love the crisp beautiful winter landscape and being out in it - on the other hand shovelling snow, driving on icy roads, cleaning snow and ice off the car after work at midnight after an evening shift are getting real old!  So spring, come on in.
