We were hoping to have lots of photos of Quint taking his first stroll in his garden today, and even after a first (first!) warm-ish dry weekend, but it seems Ms. Rain Showers and Mr. Chilly Skies will be with us for a while longer. We’re barely into fifty degree (F.) daytime temperatures here, too cold for Mancat walks outside just yet. Yes, we are officially tired of the cold and rain. We love cold and rain, but enough is enough already!
Quint’s been spending a lot of time up in the windows, looking for his flowers to start blooming. Sadly, the rain wiped all the Star Magnolia flowers away before they could be enjoyed and all we have thus far are a couple of sad daffodils keeping all the moss company.
This double rainbow brightened our day, however, and made us believe our garden will soon be bursting with color.
Quint’s not waiting around for a reason to paint.
Sure, I miss my flowers but a boy’s gotta march on forward when tough times call for it. My flowers will come along. I’m sure of it!
And then, he got to painting, using the colors he’d been watching all spring. You might remember at the beginning of the month, he spent a lot of time painting this and that, most of which is still waiting for those pops of color that he won’t add until his garden flowers arrive.
But he did create some pretty paintings given we’re still in our Pacific Northwest (Northwet?) gloom. We bet you’d like to see what he did with that navy blue and lavender, huh? Introducing Quint’s Pop of Spring 2017.
And because sometimes, Quint likes the softer colors of spring before all the flowers go wild and bold, he created this second one called Spring Fling 2017.
In both you might be able to make out just a little bit of daffodil color. If you know Quint and his color leanings, you know he really wanted to slather on the yellow. Good thing our outside moss isn’t all yellow, right?
You can bet he’ll get something all yellowed-up later in the year, and in the meantime, please visit his art shop to see his newest offerings. He’d love to know what you think of his latest efforts (and your thoughts on the color yellow), and hopes maybe, one of his works will find its forever home with you!
