We had rain last week & most of the grass really greened up into that vibrant chartreuse color that happens for a moment in the spring. There is one spot in particular that I drive past that seems particularly lush with visible mowing lines. Additionally, I often drive past it in the afternoon when the light is shining thru the trees causing dark lines of cast shadows. That vision of grass is definitely the inspiration for the paintings. And while I have not fallen in love with the Dr. Ph. Martin watercolors I am thankful I persevered long enough to make these paintings, as I think think their chartreuse color is spot on. Happy Monday Y'all!
