spring fever...waaaay to early!

Okay, I admit it. I have spring fever and its only mid-January. Not only do we have three months of cold blustery days ahead, but I know that when I get back to Boston I am going to really get hit hard with reality! Tacoma is soggy and soppy, yes, but its also sort of warm and rainy in a springier (wishful thinking) sort of way. So, I am trying to think of things I can do to cheer up the gloomy winter months ahead. Of course, going to the gym is a start, its always warm in exercise rooms, and with everyone running around in tanks and shorts its almost like stepping into a warmer climate. So, gym, check. I also love the colors of spring, soft bright hues against a slate grey sky...oooh! So, my next series of paintings are going to be studies of flowers. Beautiful, bright and luscious gardens, with water. I am obsessed with painting water right now, and can't wait to start a giant canvas. Here is one example of spring treats as my muse.
