Spring Still Life with Egg

It's only March, but it feels like spring here in the Rockies.  Of course, every March, Mother Nature coaxes us into believing that winter is over--the days grow warm and the trees begin budding and leafing out.  And even though anyone who has lived here anytime at all knows that it will turn cold and snowy in an instant, we all like to believe that we've seen the last of our parkas until next winter...

I'm celebrating spring today with lighter colors that reflect the season. The color of this vintage tablecloth is a perfect compliment to this blue robin's egg.  My favorite part of this painting is the dogwood petals and the multiple colors I used to paint them "white."

Buy it now price on this painting is $85 unframed.  It goes up for auction tomorrow on Daily Paintworks with a starting bid of $30.  Click on the link to my Daily Paintworks Gallery in the right sidebar of this page.
