Violet Surface and Gold Twinkles

9x9 pastel and watercolor on Uart paper $100.

Pollen, and lots of it, is a fact of life in DC at this time of year. It covers our car and makes us sneeze. One beautiful thing it does is make a coating on water surfaces. These dust like particles refract or absorb light, depending. This morning the reservoir's surface was brand new because of pollen.

BEAUTIFUL. One of my favorites. Complementary color scheme: violet/pollen. Very nice.

Jala, you know me...I love those complementary color scheme, especially violet and pollen. It's funny I had written about it and deleted. You must read between the lines.
Thanks!

This is great. It's so nice to see the new colors emerging. Looks like your foliage is a bit ahead of ours. Where were you at in PA.?

Loriann Signori said...

Thanks Brian. Yup, I think we are ahead of you. We were in West Chester PA and the forsythias and cherry trees were out. Down here we have moved along to red buds, tulips and some azaleas and dogwoods are beginning to bloom. What is it like in Harrisburg? Don't you just LOVE spring. It's our best season.
