Spring Dreams

I don't mind winter, but today I am dreaming of spring. If it was sunny and just a little warmer, I would entertain thoughts of how satisfying it will be to wrestle the garden back to order after the messiness that winter always brings. But it's cold and gray and spitting snow

and I want to move on to spring! This painting by the naturalist painter, Gari Melchers, has such a wonderful feel of a day so perfect that the doors and windows could be open to bring the outside in. This is my dream for today as I get back to work in my cold studio!
