Looking for Spring

The weather is dismal, with rain and grey.  The temperature is to drop to 0 degrees C, with the risk of frost tonight! I started a fire in the woodstove to keep the basement warm as the temperature drops steadily throughout the day.
The sun has attempted to permeate the gloom to no avail.  I am craving colour.  I am working on sketches for another painting, possibly Trout Lilies ( Erythronium americanum) and Spring Beauties (Claytonia virginica).

Inserted, are some examples of sketchbook drawings and photos on my walks, as I prepare for the next piece. 

Here is a link for information on our wildflowers:
