Ahhh ... Spring is finally here! Actually, I enjoy all of the seasons, just had enough of Winter for now. I am remembering last year when I visited the Mojave Natural wildlife refuge, and collected several photos of the Joshua tree forest. They are amazing plants. They look like wizened people struggling in one of the harshest places on the planet, and making a community of it.
My favorite painting of these ancient beings is a close-up of the first faze of a flower in the early Springtime. It's certainly an unusual Spring flower, it doesn't smell good nor would a florist desire it as a "cut" flower, but like all flowers, it is the offering of new life with the hope to continue the species.
Happy Springtime, Everyone.
