The family Chesapeake and Maine Coon Cat and I headed out again to paint and we didn't go very far. I liked the colours in the last of the melting snow and ice pellets as well as the light poking through the tangle of branches in the forest. The bees were flying once again with the temperatures peaking around plus 15 Celsius. Thus the reason for the strong and dramatic melt as well as the title.
The cat hung out around the easel while the dog chased mice and squirrels in the forest. Chauncy the boarded horse, just nosed around in the mix of straw, hay and manure behind the barn.
