Mid-February Happenings

Mid-February Happenings

This started as a memory sketch and ended with a plein air sketch. Did the lettering today. Signs of Spring are everywhere :)

I've been so taken lately with the contrast of colors in this mid-February and mid-winter landscape. The grasses; both lawn and marsh have reached their most dead and dull coloration. The blue of the water on sunny, blue sky days is absolutely brilliant and such a shock to your eyes. Red maples started to pop a few weeks ago so I splattered some red on the page :) It will mean nothing to someone who may thumb through my journal in years to come, but I will know :)
