For those of you who aren’t local to Savannah, we’ve been having some heavy rains as of late.  Quite frankly, there is no prettier city after a good rain than Savannah, Georgia.  Biased?  Perhaps, but I have lived in many states, and this one place, just seems to take the cake.  The moss draped trees, and resurrection fern, the hazy mist that just hovers over our parks and squares, and the lush green that flourishes after.  The other day, after a  fierce storm (we lost power for about 10 hours, and had many downed limbs)..not particularly fun, but as the events of the day began to snowball, we stepped out and found this…just what I needed to see, at that very moment.  A full arch rainbow, the true beauty of which cannot be captured in my crummy photograph…but I needed this.

Speaking of rainbows, I know no bigger fan of them, than the talented  Robin Lynne. Did you all see she was a featured etsy seller?!?!?! Super congrats Robin, I can only imagine how good your house smells after baking soap like a madwoman for the past week!

spring in savannah…

March 8, 2009

The azaleas are starting to bloom…the cold snap has passed…and St. Pat’s is fast approaching.  There’s nothing quite like Savannah in the spring.  I so look forward to painting outdoors with my three little apprentices!  Yesterday, I introduced the girls to Mr. Roy G. Biv, and we had a grand time painting rainbows with pots of gold at the end…and chatting about spring showers, leprachauns, and the like.  Here’s a sampling of their work…
