AWAKENING
An Original Oil Painting

This past Wednesday was a snow day - meteorologists
were warning of snow accumulations that could 
amount to as much as 10 - 12 inches.  I cancelled classes
for the day, and started  to paint a Spring scene.

We didn't get the predicted amounts of snow, but
it was a great day for painting.  This is a view 
not all that far from my house, and is just one
of the many orchards in our area.  I loved the 
new leaves of the red maples, and all of those 
glorious apple trees in bloom.

Spring stirs the land awake from a very grey winter!

Very pretty! I have given up on the idea of painting a snow scene this year...anxious for spring too.
