On The Easel - A New Teacup Painting In Natures Spring Palette

"Feeling the wind on your face, and hearing the song of the birds, and watching the sun move across the land is to know there is no greater job than to be free to paint."

"Me thinks my own soul must be a bright invisible green."... Henry David Thoreau

Another Museum teacup....I selected this one because of it's beautiful, fresh, apple green color and it's femine lines. 

Each spring, this color expodes around us in bursts of happines.  For a short time, every new leaf and blade of grass shimmers a bright, apple green. This color of new growth later changing to every shade of green imagineable.    Spring, quite possibly, is my favorite time of the year!

The color green - Natures favorite hue, has inspired poets and philosophers alike.
Thoreau proclaimed:  "Me thinks my own soul must be a bright invisible green."

I spent the better part of yesterday, outside in my flower beds, deadheading and pulling weeds.  With the spring bulbs, slowly poking their heads out of the soil and the cacaphony of birdsong around me.  It was a long awaited delight!  

And now, it's back into my studio, if only for a short while.  

Have an enjoyable Sunday,
