It's already April 11th and you are probably wondering why I haven't yet announced the theme for the April Challenge. Here we go. I am going to paint a series of paintings based on the pictures I took during my recent trip to England. The April Challenge is "I Love England"!
You know I haven't painted for three weeks. Furthermore, I haven't touched oil paints for a month and half! It took a while to get my mojo back. A sudden heat wave in the mid-Atlantic region didn't help either. My garden is going absolutely crazy. Cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin were spectacular on Tuesday. I am in the midst of spring fever. It is hard to sit calmly in my studio and paint. To prove my point, I am sharing just two pictures of my garden this morning.
