Inspired by Tree Blossoms

The Bradford pears, plums, oaks, hickories, tulip poplars, saucer magnolia, maples -- all are in bloom! A drive down any road seems magical with blurs of pink, white, lime green, and here and there bits of maroon and a blue/green ... It's so hard to capture that dreamy, all-new feel -- all fresh feel -

Late meeting night last night, and working my way through the deluge of paper on my desk and several grants ... I hope to come up for air this weekend!

We're in for a stormy, rainy day -- we need the rain, but the storms bringing in will have us under tornado threats --

Stay warm, dry and safe today!

You sound so busy I don't know how you find time to do these paintings. You must be a fast painter! This is lovely.

What a soft springy painting -- just right the muted tones as if seen through an early morning fog or mist.Lovely Lin!!

It has been raining here again since yesterday morning and is still coming down -- and cooler. Let's hope it brings May flowers!!

Big hugs,
Lorraine

Nice negative painting of the blossoms and good color. I'm hoping the world will be in bloom when we get down to Myrtle Beach for our workshop next weekend. I'm hoping for sun. Ennoy!!!
