(134) Primavera
6 x 6, oil
My long weekend turned into a little more as I got "caught up in catching up" with the business side of art: filing, framing, etc. So, it is good to be back painting today.
Happy Spring everyone, and Happy Birthday to Mimi, a wonderful artist and friend.
"There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose, because before he can do so, he has to forget all the roses that were ever painted"...Henry Matisse
