Promise of Spring

Daffodils are always among the first to show themselves and cheer us up with their promise. I wanted to keep the darkness, which is still with us, in this little painting. First day in a while that I've gotten to  more than sketch or paint in class and it felt so good. I've been holding my breath.

  1. I see a lovely loose daffodil breaking up the darkness, spring is indeed not far off.xx

  2. That's how it feels...this is a tough time of year for me, and I have to look for the beauty in the moment and keep looking. It felt like an adventure stooping over to see this, and rough it in. Then I spread all my gear out on a picnic table to finish and felt like the luckiest person on earth.
