The Colour of Spring

The Colour of Spring by Helen Shideler I have high hopes.  I think all of North America has high hopes right about now. Longing for warmer weather.  This winter has been long and very cold.  Did I mention long?

In my quest to start an oil painting each week – while still working on my larger pieces has been invigorating. Self-imposed pressure.  I do it to me all the time! But, I am loving the oil paint! When working on “Spruce Shadows , a rather snowy painting, I flipped over the newest adventure – something that makes we think of warmer times.  Something yellow!

Yellow.  Think of daffodils, forsythia, tulips.  Yellow.  Sunshine yellow.  Warm yellow.  Heart warming. Soul stirring. Yellow!  Loving every shade and every touch of paint.
