The willow tree by the back stairs is blooming.
You may think it strange, but I spent a half hour studying its hues this morning.
The forms of its blossoms fascinate me, but it's the color I found most captivating today.
I devised a whole palette around just the first photo above.
There is a piece half done in the studio, based entirely on this amazingly citrus-like color scheme. I can hardly wait to finish it.
God shocks me again today, leaving palettes to delight my eyes everywhere I turn. Even on one tiny blossom of the willow bush blooming in the oaken barrel by the back stairs.
