Beauties and Beasts

"When Spring Arrives," watercolor,  8 x 10, 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper
March on the  Great Plains...When spring arrives, it comes in spurts...sunny and warm one day, cloudy and chilly the next.
Eventually as the temps climb, bringing wind and moisture into the atmosphere, sure signs of spring will be thunderheads building on the horizons.
The beauties and beasts of spring...ever changing, always captivating, but fickle in promising spring showers, and sometimes dangerous with threats of violence.
