A few rainy days and temperatures finally over 0*c have certainly had an adverse effect on the heavy snow we have had this winter. As the snow melts, it leaves behind the dirt, and garbage exposed that had been collected under its' layers during the long winter winds and blowing snow. I guess it is a small price to pay for the feel of spring in the air.
Interestingly enough, for me anyway, the above painting was painted using the left over paint and their mixtures from the previous painting. Interesting colours to start a painting with.
