The excitement of spring

As I walk around the desert with Pono, I am finding many things now blooming or about to bloom.  I love this time of year!  With the rain we had at the beginning of the year, it promises to be a verdant spring.  I am so excited.  The Mohave Yucca is blooming.  So fabulous. 

The Joshua Trees are still blooming, but the one in our backyard is beginning to drop petals now.  They decorate the desert floor like confetti after a party. 

This is going to be a short post, but I do have another painting to share with you.  This one is oil on canvas, and it is titled "It's a bird, it's a..."
This painting is oil on canvas, and measures 24 x 18 inches.   This painting is all about incorporating more play and whimsy into my art.

Happy spring, everyone!
