Iridescent Exuberance

Well, now I know it's coming.

Lambs up the street? Check (sorry, no pic)


 Cherry Blossoms? 

Check and Check



When I was writing the artist statement for my Houston IQA entry last year, I was admittedly a little punchy. I wrote that the "iridescent exuberance" of grackles fascinates me, and that though some folks count on robins to announce spring, I really know that it's coming when the grackles show up. And this year, that day was yesterday. Welcome, Spring!

One is for sorrow, two are for joy,
Three for a girl, four for a boy.
Five are for silver, six are for gold
Seven for a secret, never to be told...

I've been thinking about a blackbird quilt, too.
