Before their time

Magnolias were blooming in Washington, DC before the beginning of March. Like pink silk kimono in the morning light of a darkened room. Too early for these spring blossoms. Still, their sensuous beauty is irresistable. Anxiety yet enjoyment nevertheless.

Inspired by seeing the fabulous American Watercolor in the Age of Homer and Sargent exhibition last weekend at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Been thinking about making myself learn to paint for years. Can't learn anything that I just think about but don't try. Have start somewhere ... so I gave it a whirl. Now I wish I'd started years ago. But as goes the cliche, better late than never.
