Spring Thaw

Spring Thaw, 8x8 oil


Yesterday I painted at Princes Point in Hamilton. It's part of the Royal Botanical Gardens, a beautiful area at the end of Lake Ontario, along the Desjardin Canal. While painting this scene, my back was to the water. I love the tracks cut into the softening earth,  a sure sign that spring is on the way.  Ah spring, soon the trees will be covered in small bright green leaves!
