This piece captures my desire for colors of spring during the Blizzard of 2022 on Cape Cod. Thick layers of white paint with a layer of bright color interjections, lightly mixed with my fingers. Did not like it so covered with white flat paint mixed with grey and silver to darken the piece as blizzards can be quite blinding. Once it dried, the paint cracked showing brightness underneath. Perhaps it was my hopes for spring or perhaps it’s indicative of what’s buried far beneath…either way, Mother Nature rebounds.
