30 Paintings in 30 Days: Painting #11

Ok, so I'm even more behind now than I was a few days ago, but that's more because of my inability to call something complete, than my lack of effort! I have five other paintings in process and nearly complete, so there's that.

We've been buried in snow for 8 days in Portland. 14" of snow and unusually cold winter temps have made for some serious cabin fever around here. The roads are a thick sheet of ice... still. The rain finally returned today so here's hoping it's all melted in the next day or two. That being said, my mind has been desperately hoping for spring. Enter this painting inspired by last year's visit to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm's Annual Tulip Festival! 

I've always loved spring in Portland. The contrast of our dark gloomy skies and all the plants coming back to life- so lush and vibrant--- It's my favorite!
