Hi. I'm a painter, a writer and a mother of three teenage sons, one with a severe disability. This is a journal: riotously disorganized, full of art, food, children and everyday domestic events. Unless you are a friend or family member you may not be interested, but you are welcome to look. Artists who are parents may find some
common ground here, as well as parents of children with special needs. For art only, see my site: nancybeamiller.blogspot.com

First Day of Spring!
George Inness (1825-1894) Spring Blossoms, Montclair, New Jersey. Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1891
Happy Vernal Equinox to you! It was a beautiful day, so warm and sunny that I actually peeled off a layer at some point...a first for this season! In fact it's been so mild here on the East Coast of the US that the spring blossoming trees seem to be blooming all at once...no slow succession of almond to crabapple magnolia to cherry etc. Just a mad froth of color and petals...like a very big and frou-frou wedding party!
