the sun came out for a minute

Early hint of spring here in Northern Illinois. I found this in my front yard. It is called the Lesser celandine and is all of a half inch across. Sunshine and a flower? After many long months of winter, I'll celebrate.
And here is a detail of my current painting in the studio, a joyful oil on canvas 40x30 inches. Buckets of yellow and pools of blue skies, this is a commission for a particularly sunny client.
