"In Like a Lion" is how March began here in northeast Ohio....snowstorms continue to surprise and schools still calling off a day now and then. Spring is in the air. The light quality is enlightening. But we are still wearing boots. I have always found studies of boots and shoes to be interesting...reflecting the taste and the daily habits of the wearer. I thought that this painting was done, although I continued to ruminate about the long horizontal format and the lack of rhythm between the two boots. So, on a very brave day, I pulled the work out of the mat and added the vertical cad red stripe on the left and a couple of touches of orange. Ahhhhhh........much better.
Spring sometimes comes gradually.....as does resolution.
