Spring Field in Tracy

While the Earth is still technically in winter (spring comes tomorrow), much of the Northern Hemisphere is still chilly.  But in my Californian valley, spring has long started.  The weather is sunny, wild flowers are blooming, lambs are out and about, and days are growing longer. Near the house, small yellow Mustard Flowers stretch and wash across the fields far as the human eye can see.
When going to paint, the good artist looks to see if his paints on the pallet are skin free.  Noticing the bits of flaking dry paint stuck onto the painting, I covered them up with thicker paint, instead of, you know, scraping them out.
