I find myself wanting to paint more. To explore new techniques...new colors...new, new, new.

No real profound thoughts about it though...I just feel really thankful deep down in my soul for so many blessings. The blessings of family, friends, nature and art to name a few. Too many to count really.
So while the flowers are blooming, I hope you have many blessings too.
I will see you in a week...we are off to Montana to see our oldest son, daughter in-law and grandson.
