Untitled -- Work In Progress
Acrylic ink and black marker on
9 x 12 inches
We are experiencing one of the most beautiful and prolongedsprings in recent years. The lush greens, and the brilliance
of the flowers, is incredibly inspiring. It's definitely
a "stop the car" kind of spring, and I am happily gathering
images to paint. And tonight the whole city is celebrating
because the Toronto Raptors Won the NBA Championship!
I was drawn to the scene in this painting by the gorgeous,
vibrant lilac bush on the corner of this property. I was also
thinking of my friend Rita, who would love the rich, and
vivid mauve of this lilac. I have never seen the lilacs
do this well. And they are seeming to last much longer into
the season as well. And to my over-the-top Raptors fan friend --
Raylea -- I say, "Hey we won!"
Have an enjoying your neighbourhood day.
