There is something special about spring air. It is not just warm. It is also fragrant with lilac scent!
By the way, I am working in a series this year. I already finished the first series of nine paintings without a theme. I happened to have nine 8" x 10" stretched canvases, hehe!

The second series in progress is called "I Love Color". Each painting is devoted to a particular color. For instance, "Poipu Beach Sunset" is a mauve painting; "White Garden", a white painting; "Big Sur Blue", a blue painting; and "Red Poppies", obviously a red one! They are going to be all 12" x 16" paintings.

"Lilac Spring" is the second painting in the third series, "Floral Squares". This series will be all 12" x 12".

The idea behind my 2014 series is to work within a certain size and format, which will suggest its own possibilities and limitations. I am also painting larger than the so-called "daily paintings", spending more time on each painting. No more rushing to get a painting done so that I can move on to the next one. Believe me, it has been exhausting. I will have more time to reflect, putz around my garden, take a walk in a park, go to museums, and have a hot date with my husband. I will have life again!
