Must be Spring

 

The miserable winter of 2015 left trees and shrubs in shambles. Pulling broken magnolia branches out of a snow bank, I brought them home  to see if they would bloom. The flowering was only partially successful, but I was very smitten with the resulting painting and started to imagine a series in a larger format. The Thistles, painted summer 2015 and The Cherry Blossoms, just completed are both 30×30 – a huge amount of canvas real estate compared to my more typical canvases. Expect to see more of these.
