Spring: Paintings & Butterflies

Detail of "Flight" by Bonnie Joy Bardos

The old saying is true: you can't stop spring. Green leaves unfurl amid showers of apple dogwood ballet, birds singing at lavender dawn. Today, I hauled baskets of painting supplies out to the front porch studio (as I like to call it) and painted. Azaleas, blue sky, breeze, fish pond trickling--my graceful orange friends weaving along the surface. River Dog has a new friend as studio assistant: Pikachu the cat lazes nearby as River snores. You just can't get good help these days! Jokes aside, I love my little helpers. Just having their peaceful companionship adds to the pleasures of life. And painting. This one is a detail of "Flight": I've been working on a series of smaller butterfly paintings as well as others to celebrate the season.
