Happy Spring!

"Vive Printemps"

Happy Spring!

While I love the winter, I am very ready for spring.

Yesterday was the first day of spring and it did not disappoint me. I was lucky enough to have the day off, and I took a (very) short walk. It was windy, but the sun was warm and the clouds were tall and puffy. I couldn't quite smell the grass growing yet, but I knew it was only a matter of time.

I finished this painting yesterday. I chose rabbits because they are a sure sign of spring. In the spirit of celebrating rabbits, I looked around youtube to find some cute rabbit videos. Here is my favorite video:

Two Chickens Break up a Rabbit Fight

Enjoy!
