This painting is perhaps a vision of longing ... for home in the southwest - when for just a short while in the spring time, there is a wash of bright color! Wild flowers blooming profusely, unabashedly - as if in a joyful celebration of the warmth of spring! Here I've shown the beautiful yellow of spring time wild flowers blooming in a field with mesquite trees. To really get the feeling right, there needs to be a smell of sage wafting through the air too - but, I haven't figured out how to include that in a blog!
