Spring is here at last. Today we have clear blue skies, the birds are singing and the view goes for miles. We have had rain every few days so everywhere is green and lush. The trees are in blossom and the flowers are out. It is a beautiful time to be alive. Work has been demanding but today is one of my precious days doing nothing but painting. I am enjoying using oil paints. I also am thinking of doing a large drawing based on the West MacDonnell Ranges using charcoal and inks.
