Like most of us in the northeast, I'm thinking SPRING! I had some photos from a set up I had done last Spring and never painted, so I did some cropping to come up with this charcoal sketch. I'm a little unresolved as to what the background will be--light or dark--my photo source was light. I may do another sketch or perhaps a color study to work that out. This is what I like about the "painting process"--giving myself permission to try different things and just see how they work without worrying about producing a "perfect" product. I'm sure many artists can appreciate and associate with that feeling.
