The Vital Beauty of Spring
The sun has just risen. The day has already become one of those rare days, found only in Spring, with clearness of light, pureness of air, and comfort in temperature. Yesterday exhibited this same beauty. I spent much it admiring the specific charms of Spring: the new and vital daffodils, the grass of pale green clarity seen for a few days before it saturates into the depths of summer, and the blue, cloudless sky. I did, however, spend enough time in my artificially lit studio to make two drawings. These are simple studies, and only the second has a chance of standing on its own as a work of art. I think I have been resting up, getting my energy and insight together, preparing to focus once again on solving the painting "Window." Spring does inspire a charge in energy, as if the suddenly energized flora and fauna transfer some of their vitality to us. My plans are to work on moving "Window" one more step toward its inevitable solution. Beyond that, the loveliness that is Spring will enchant me.
