Spring Greens





Everything is "springy" here right now. Lots of spring greens and storms about every 15 minutes. Violent storms. I happened to be at my daughter's school recently when the tornado siren went off and got to spend an extraordinary evening with 70 students in the basement of the Webb School gym. When the evening was over I had developed a deep appreciation for the patience and tolerance of teachers and faculty.
The paintings posted were all done last week. I had the chance to paint with Jason Saunders and Anne Blair Brown on Thursday and Friday had the opportunity to do a demo for the art classes at Christ Presbyterian Academy. They came to Leiper's Creek Gallery and due to severe weather and torrential rains yet again, I got to do the demo through the back window of the gallery. Not ideal, but I was just glad I didn't have to do it in a storm shelter.

Well, get your tornado pants on again tonight because we are about to get slammed here in Memphis around midnight so it is coming your way afterwards! On another note, LOVE the spring greens in all of these! Just beautiful!

Denise - Apparently the storms weren't as bad as predicted. I slept through. Hope Memphis did too.
And thanks for the blog comment!

Steven - Thanks for stopping by and the comment. It's nice to hear it inspires others.
