Spring comes hesitantly to Colorado. Winter reappears unexpectedly, and for a while the seasons stammer back and forth between warm sun and thick snow. The daffodils in the painting shown here are from my parents’ garden. Just after I finished the painting, a few snowflakes began to fall, and soon a late snow storm buried the flowers in one of winter’s short-lived recoveries.
