The colors and vibrancy of vegetation this Spring is eye-popping. How could anyone not be out sketching, painting or photographing? I accompanied Jim to his physical therapy appointment for his vertigo problem, at the clinic in town. Sitting in the waiting room, I had a clear view out the big windows, my little watercolor palette, a water brush and a little square of watercolor paper nearby in my kit. They practically crawled out and shoved themselves into my hands.
Next Winter, along about January, I'll pull this out and remember the glow of sun through the tulips and new leaves. Purple shadows spilling across pavement.
