To celebrate, I wrote a song. It's to the tune of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." I've changed it to "The Twelve Hours of Spring", in honor of those perfect 12 hours of absolutely flawless springtime weather. Sing it with me, won't you? And let's start it at the end. We don't have all day.
hyacinth in bloom
breezes softly wafting
buds peeking meekly
squirrels dancing wildly
trees budding leaflets
clouds white as cotton
Tooooo-lips pure red!
neighbor mowing loudly
(drum roll please)
and a sky that's as blue as can beeeeeeeee!
And if that isn't enough to get you excited about spring, Mavis and I are getting ready to celebrate the Big 5-0.
We're at Day 35 in our quest to discover what's Off The Highway, our 100 paintings in 100 days project. When we reach Day 50, the Big 5-0, on May 8th, 2009, we'll immortalize the occasion by giving away that day's paintings to two lucky people.
Here's how you can get in on the festivities-
Skip on over to Off The Highway, and say hello. That's it. You could expand on that if you'd like, and actually say something else, like, "Wow, your work is fabulous!", or "Sign me up for the Big 5-0!", but a simple "hello" will do. We'll keep track, put the names into a hat and draw out the winners. How cool is that?

No, really, how cool is that?
