Birches and Pond


Birches and Pond

Spring ... and daylight savings time. Already I'm behind an hour with the new time change, and after a long day in the car yesterday, mentally behind as well ...

Still, I left the upstairs windows open to awaken to the sounds of birds singing and spring acomin'! Temps are supposed to be in the 80s!!! today -- remember Monday? It was below 20F -- 6 days later -- 80? Mercy .. no wonder folks are sporting colds!

River Dance was all I remembered and more! Our children chose excellent seats and we could even watch the percussionist perform his own magic along with the singers and dancers. I was so ready for toe-tapping myself! LOL Excellent performance! The wind instruments were haunting as always -- but the percussion of those taps and high-flying legs -- mesmerizing!

I painted this last weekend trying to anticipate a bit of spring with snow in the forecast ... LOL I managed to sketch a bit during the long drive, but sketching in a moving vehicle is a challenge and I didn't risk the paints! LOL

Today, C has his jam at the house, and I plan to see if Ms. Muse will bless me out of doors for a bit of plein air.

Have a great Sunday!

So lovely and springy! I love Riverdance also and see it every chance I get.

Once again, an overall gorgeous painting but what takes my heart are the white birches in the foreground. Excellent!!! Glad you had such a terrific time at River Dance. They are incredible. I've seen them on KET. I rewatched the old Roy Orbison concert on KET last night. Just love that!
Have a restful day painting outside.
Hugs,
Lorraine
