Almost Spring

With all these blue cloudless skies I feel like Spring is just around the corner. Being the art history nerd I am, I thought I'd share one of my favorite paintings that reminds me of the soon to be changing of seasons.

When I was little my Mom used to find and hang various paintings of young children playing outdoors (a subtle tribute to her three daughters). This John Singer Sargent painting, Carnation Lily, Lily Rose, has always reminded me of those familiar prints that used to hang in our family room. The the beauty of the blooming garden is perfectly accented with the warm glow of the just-lit lanterns illuminating the girls faces. This is my ode to Spring, may it come soon!
