Spring has come late this year. I was walking my dogs in the field behind the horse pasture the other day, amid all the brown and beige winter grasses and dried stems snapping under my feet. When I looked up, I saw an eye-popping flash of brilliant blue. I decided to do a watercolor to try and show the contrast between the winter-worn landscape and the impossible shade of blue.
Even if I can’t adequately capture it, the bluebird is a welcome sight during this transition.
