"The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month." ~Henry Van Dyke

Give someone a Daisy and watch their face lite up. Daisys are little discs of sunshine and happiness. Each petal offering a promise of love and hope. And right now..... I am hoping..... for a little sunshine and spring!
Mother Nature played a cruel and belated April Fools Day joke on us on Saturday the 2nd. We awoke to find the ground covered in snow, with an icy cold wind and more snow, sleet and rain for the rest of the day.
It has remained cool and overcast since.
So feeling that Mother Nature needed a little push....I've selected daisys instead of the usual spring time flower one might enjoy gazing at while sipping their tea this time of year!
Continuing to deepen values throughout this painting. With any luck....it will be finished tomorrow!
Enjoy your day,
