Oklahoma springtime challenge--watercolor

"Wildflower morning," 5 by 7 watercolor, 300 Lb. d'Arches
"It might as well be spring."
                                                                  --Rodgers and Hammerstein
Where there is aging and death, there is also life, bursting forth  in every season if you look, but especially in spring.
Nothing captures that truth for me like a field full of wildflowers, especially around metaphorical old farm buildings--Bluebonnets in Texas or Indian Paintbrush and many others in Oklahoma.
Morning of a new year, of new life--Springtime in Oklahoma--WorldWatercolorMonth day 8 challenge.
