How To Celebrate February


February is upon us and yet on Thursday,  Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and declared that we are in for another six weeks of winter. Here in New Jersey, we have been experiencing bright days and almost balmy temperatures. But February can be deceiving. Sandwiched between wintry January and springy March, it can never quiet make up its mind which way to go and we too go along for the ride with one eye cocked over the shoulder for a late-winter storm while searching with another for fugitive signs of spring on the frozen ground. In a forward looking mood, I was inspired (by the seed catalogs in Bio Diversity Heritage Library) to paint these cheery dahlias.

February is also the month of my engagement and wedding thirty-five years ago and the birth of my daughter two years later. I love February! Here are a couple of doodle to celebrate love and togetherness.
