Painting Joy

Has anybody seen this bird? 

Around here after the groundhog it is the return of the robin that seems to mark the real beginning of spring. The robin would be the early bird that gets the worm but it is the purple finches and Canada Geese that have arrived first this year. You just never know what will happen.

While we wait for the weather to improve and the outdoor painting to get underway playing with paint in the studio just for fun allows new experiences between myself and colour and texture. It is where the really exciting things happen that keeps drawing me back over and over again.
