Collage of My March Paintings

Collage of My March Paintings

March is almost over!  What a month it has been!  A snow storm after a snow storm. Yesterday we had an all-day-long snow/hail/sleet/rain "deluge", which caught weather forecasters by surprise and caused a major leak in my storeroom.  I am fervently hoping that I saw the last of the snowflakes for the season.

You may have noticed that I painted only nine paintings during a 31-day month.  Why? My artistic enthusiasm has been flagging.  I had to dig deeper and deeper into my old photo files to look for painting inspirations.  It has been a drag.

But no more.  The long-overdue spring has finally sprung!  My garden is about to burst with spring flowers.  Here are some I caught this sunny morning.

White daffodils

Goodbye, winter.  Hello, spring!


  1. Yes, I did notice I wasn't hearing from you. It is very much OK to take a break and rejuvenate. I too cut back, found the 'to do" list too stressful, and now find joy in the process of painting. I have become so enthused again I have taken a couple of workshops and have a painting trip to ME coming up in July

    1. Two workshops in a row! Good for you!
