It's spring at the Del and the Del found a nice home. 

Everything begins to pop and bloom during the spring

I believe that is the highest honor of an artist.

Again, many thanks to Tirage Art Gallery for this sale,

Joy! 
. . . when a favorite painting goes to a special home.

National Park. Was such an inspirational time of my life. 

Thank you Jori!
