feeling spring...

Her colors began to emerge::Spring (from dreaming to waking)

Are you feeling spring? I smell it in the air, I can see it in the landscape but more than anything I can feel it. Inside I feel the stirrings of optimism and hope that the season embodies. The dark and grey days of winter will end (they always do) and sure enough spring will emerge in all it's green glory. I love being back in the mid-west where the seasons are well defined and there is an almost communal joy that people share as this change from grey to green begins in earnest. I've mentioned before that Autumn is my favorite season but this year I need Spring and all it's sunshine, rain and growth.
In other news, remember when I told you a while back that a painting of mine had been purchased to be in a movie? The movie is "The Lincoln Lawyer" with Matthew McConaughey and Marisa Tomei. I was told when I signed the release that my painting would be hanging in the apartment of a girl in her mid-20's. So Friday night I was super excited as I went to see the movie with C by my side. Unfortunately, the 20 year old girl is the victim of a violent attack and every scene in her apartment was really dark and fast paced and so despite all my squinting and looking I wasn't able to spot the painting. This however did not diminish the sense of pride I felt walking out of the movie theater. I've grown so accustomed to sending my paintings off to real people whom I make a mini connection with through notes or email. I can't help but wonder where the painting is now? Is it hanging in a cast member or production person's house? Is it in a storage facility or at an auction? I guess I'll never know about this little starlet. By the way the movie was really, really good and I loved the soundtrack. It's kind of gritty-city-summertime-music with a laid back 70's vibe. Anyways, I would definitely recommend the movie and if you happen to have better eyes than me and you see my piece in the movie drop me a line.
