Happy Vernal Equinox
A very Happy Spring Equinox to all my northern hemisphere friends! And a very Happy Autumnal Equinox to all my southern friends!
Here in Florida we didn't have spring, it skipped ahead already to summer! It's been hot, but at least the humidity isn't around yet.
Anyway, I did this watercolor on heavy watercolor paper last year for the first day of spring. Someone asked me why the girl had to pull up the roots on the flowers - oh, that cracked me up. I hadn't even realized that's how I painted it and I have no idea, why - I guess I thought the painting needed some brown in that area to balance it out.
Goes to show how painting helps take me out of myself to where I just feel and not think. And that's a good thing!
