Spring in the Northern Hemisphere I


Besides windy, Chicago is really chilly this April. I was surprised with an unexpected April snow that painted the streets and roofs in white. I wasn´t  prepared for this,but with the limited opportunity for plein air painting I could spend more time visiting museums and galleries without guilty.

I´m an early bird, I loved to watch the first rays of sun bathing the white rooftops....

A book that has been inspiring me from some years now after reading it : The Art Spirit, by Robert Henry.
And here I am in front of two of his amazing paintings...
