The most challenging subject to paint in my neighbourhood today is the road. The thermometer is up in the positives, and after all the snow we had earlier in the week, there are some good reflections to be found. Besides the puddles, I spotted some other early signs of spring: lots of birds, people without hats on, and a father and son on their bikes. Winter is not over yet but as a dog walker, it makes me happier to navigate a wet road than an icy one.

    If you tell me you painted this with one hand while walking the dog with the other, I will have to commit brush hair-kari

    Thank you for more study fodder & sumptuous eye candy – great project for puddle lessons
