Not sure where you’re reading this but here in Ashland, Oregon spring has sprung, leapt, sproinged off the balance beam and landed a perfect 10. And I’m loving it. I think the whole town is soaking it up. Sunny, warm, blue skies, flowers everywhere in sight and writing this at 6:30pm and it feels like the afternoon. Ahhhhhhhh.
I can’t help but be inspired by birds, branches, blossoms, green leaves and my first art love, natural history. (I’ve looked at, designed, sold, found, collaged and/or displayed more birds and butterflies in a lifetime that it never occurred to me that I’d return…I always loved them…but, new chapter.) I was wrong! I am loving researching old/new birds. Looking at details of butterfly prints, going through my old piles of ephemera. Remembering how to paint branches and leaves. It’s coming back and feels like a personal spring.
This one and a collection I’m doing for elizabethW in Carmel will be available at the beginning of April. So grateful to feel the world turn a corner…it’s in the air.
