A thunderstorm was moving in and I tried to get a quick sketch of the on coming clouds…a fast mix of sun and shade made it tricky to get the right scheme…

One of the rare times I get to paint a fruit tree in full bloom.  The flowers only last a few days and then they blow off.

A closer sketch of the Trillium before they wither.  Unfortunately the scan loses a lot of the subtle shades and details of the flowers.

This is no doubt my favorite time of year when the Trillium come up.  This winter has been rather cold and brutal, but that has not stopped these wonderful flowers from popping up and blooming on time.  I will try to get out and paint them as much as possible before the mosquitos have their way.

The ice still has not melted and it was still quite chilly sketching, but it is very interesting to try to capture this slow transition.

The last of the ice is slowly melting but it has still cling on and is so thin and has a dark matte finish to the reflective light color of the water.  Birds have migrated back in waves and it is a welcome site.  Soon I will be back kayaking on the open water.

The snow has not fully melted but the temps are finally above freezing so I had some time to capture the transition.  The colors are still muted and fall like, but the light is much brighter, if that makes any sense.
