Spring Song!

Every year, the arrival of spring, for me, is when the trees outside my house fill with the red winged blackbirds. From the beginning of March, I watch for them, and when they finally arrive, I know that it is really spring, no matter what it looks like outside.. rain, snow, cold. It doesn't matter. These birds bring with them the confirmation that it is indeed spring!
I painted this a couple of years ago, in celebration of springs' arrival. Yesterday I saw my first red wing blackbird in my yard, so I am posting my painting and saying 'YES!!"

Thai eggplant with white jug

I liked the simplicity of this still life setup. It is another one awaiting final touches.
