Hey, it's full-on spring now in Ithaca, no denying it. There's birds checking out nesting sites under my porch again, and my housemates are planting potatoes and otherwise getting their SEVEN community garden plots underway.
And asparagus is showing up at the farmers' market. Yum, I heart asparagus. Here's a painting I did this winter in celebration of this fine vegetable, and also as a practical demo painting for a class I was teaching, in watercolor and colored pencils. (not a great scan though, sorry).
