This is "Spring"? (and Portraits)...

I've already mowed the lawn two weeks in a row, and now it's snowing again!It's made up of those pretty little kernels of corn snow, not unusual in Spring and a perfectly desirable type of snow for skiing (here in Utah, where we have the Greatest Snow on Earth).
Tulips in the garden are out in full blooming glory---now trying to hold their heads up under the new snowfall.
It's really a good day to stay inside and focus on my indoor task of painting pet portraits for a lovely greyhound mom. She commissioned portraits of her three greyhounds. I've sketched out all three poses on canvas and am beginning to lay in the tones and colors with paint on the first one (shown at the bottom).

  1. Hi Toni,
    Typical springtime in the mountains. It's really not safe to plant anything until May!

    Love the portrait!
