February's Dream by lachwen February's Dream by lachwen
Every February, without fail, I am completely depressed by the never-ending torture that is winter in Michigan. And every February, without fail, I feel a burning need to make a cheery, sunny, sweet, spring-like painting.

This painting is nearly a year old now (done Feb 08), but I can sense the same feeling creeping up again already in Jan.

Spring is a vague dream that shimmers alluringly in my mind...

Sorry to hear about the dreadful Michigan weather.

This, however, is a lovely painting. Realistic, yes, but somehow surreal. And I can't help but love the sentiments behind it. This certainly emanates the warmth of a sweet spring day.

Trust me, it gets old pretty quickly. It's always fun for the first couple days, but after four-five months of snow, blizzards and grey skies it becomes completely unbearable.
