Spring is showing mostly in patches: cultivated plantings of pears, cherries, and bulbs. It's more subtle in the "wild". The redbuds and some dogwoods are showing, and there's a bit more bright green scattered about. The color at the lake was more obvious when I started the painting and became more subdued over the course of an hour, as the sun rose. The warmth and hints of color make even the air seem festive somehow.
