Portland Maine—March 22, 2012—Sunny 78°

March in Maine is usually cold, snowy, rainy, sleety and gray and this relentless dreary weather usually lasts through most of April. Spring is a long time coming to northern New England, but not this week. Warm, sunny, dry weather has decended upon us and though it is not normal and probably wreaking havoc with the balance of things, it is so lovely to see clear blue sky and feel the warmth of the sun.

A quick sketch of the coastline. Though the landscape is still mostly brown, some trees are starting to bud and the grass is just starting to turn green, well brownish green...

This is gorgeous! It's been warm here too, with an early spring. I still don't trust it though :-)

Wonderful sketch. I love all of the spots of color and how they interact with the line. (I have a tendency to fill everything in).

Things here are blooming a month earlier than usual, which is saying a lot, since we already get an early spring. I love this landscape, Jennifer. Beautiful
