Either way you look at it, Spring Is Here (which is the title of a wonderfully morose Rogers & Hart song).
I walked out for a stroll on the stroke of the Spring Equinox to listen to a dozen versions of the song and chose Sinatra's first studio recording arranged by Alex Stordahl as my fave. Ella's version is a close second and Vic Damone wins hands down for the most interesting arrangement composed by someone never credited.
Anyway, on that stroll, a caravan of SUVs packed with high school students sped up and down my road and several times around the roundabout honking and whooping Someone called, "Hey, Cutie!" at me. Most of the bodies were halfway out the car windows except, thank god, for the drivers. Spring is here, indeed!
It's cold here but quite pretty. I've been wading (happily) through centuries of landscape paintings for the master class I'm teaching. I make a demo for each lesson and while the above looks very much like driving into Philadelphia along the West River Drive, it's actually a slightly clumsy copy of a mid-19th century oil of Ville d'Avray.
If you might be interested in joining the next time I open that or my Watercolor Through History course, or would like to learn more, please visit my Learn page or just get in touch.
Not only is it spring, just hours after the equinox comes the New Moon in Aries. Any new moon is good for beginnings, the beginning of spring certainly is but Aries marks the beginning of the astrological calendar. A trinity of opportunity. No need to scramble for the perfect intentions. it may be enough to allow the heavenly energy to breathe new life into you.
Wishing you health and beauty through the coming season.
