For painters this is special. The longer days let you see everything in a new light literally, whether you're out of doors or in your studio. It's a good time to re-evaluate the things you're doing painting-wise and see if it's time to tweak a few of them. Like your palette, for one--does it need a refresh or an additional color (or two) to enhance painting in the season?
As temperatures climb, we're more likely to take our gear out for some landscape paintings en plein air. Depending on where you live, you may have only a month or two before the temperatures climb too high for comfort, so take advantage.
Today's image is a simple landscape salute to the greening of the earth.
Spring is here.
