Studio Spring, 10x12
Spring is too short. Summer is slightly better but still doesn't last long enough. In fact, the whole thing is just too short. How are we expected to get even a decent amount packed into a brief lifetime?
There was a time when I wanted to be a symphony orchestra. Often I would get corrected by folks saying, 'You mean you want to be the conductor'. No. I wanted to be the whole symphony. Who can listen to Pictures at an Exhibition and not want to be the whole orchestra? (You pick your own piece...that's just one of mine.....and I actually still want to be the whole orchestra.)
Anyway. So many flowers, so much vibrant sun, so many carefree days. Too short.
I wish this were my studio but it belongs to Debbie and Gary and they were kind enough to let me paint their flowers on a perfect Spring day.
