March roaring in...

Detail, Spring Equinox, 2/26/2012
 My latest painting, a work in progress, I can't really declare it done, but it's very close, I'm loving the colors and textures that are going on in there...

Spring Equinox, 2/26/2012, acrylic wash monotype, rice paper on canvas, 40 x 16 inches


detail of Spring Equinox
It glows...I was unhappy with it for a bit of time, then on Sunday night just before bed, I went at it one more time, obliterating parts that I had liked previously, but was no longer so enamored with...

I'm probably celebrating spring too soon as it is just the beginning of March, and it is a lovely sunny day, but that WIND has been howling, like it does in March, purging winter away...it's enough to make you feel a little punch drunk after spending a little too long outside...it's been a mild winter, probably the mildest in my memory...but I dare not speak so soon, it is March after all, and it's a long month...and there are still possible snow storms...some of our worst happen in March.
