Spring is coming!

What a  difference a week makes! We are finally getting a break from some of the dreary weather that winter brought Macau and have been enjoying, what feels to me, like full on Spring! It’s making it very hard for me to stay in the studio and I hope to do some plein air painting in the coming weeks. I still remain fascinated by the lotus that grows here so predominately. Here are some photos that I took in the fall just before last years lotus shriveled up. I can’t wait to see it come back this spring but in the meantime I am using these photos for inspiration for a new series I’m working on.
