Here is another homage to early springtime in the hills. The wildflowers are in profusion and the back hills add a lovely backdrop to the scene. I have a hankering for these lovely impending Springtime days - but must wait a bit for the color to return.
This painting was done on the back of a small bamboo box. These boxes are sold in the decor stores and used normally as a drawer divider. They make nice painting surfaces when gessoed over and painted on the backside with oil paintings. The box sides are painted yellow ochre. The last view below includes a bit of the side, and texture
