"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." ~Charles Dickens
Seeing purple Crocus flowers and sunny yellow Daffodils, when I was out running with my dog recently inspired this new tiny painting.
The lovely-delicate and much welcome colors of early spring in New England were the muse behind "Little Mouse and Crocus".
