i love superstitions that have to do with the first of something, the color and number of the first butterflies you see in the spring, the first gifts for babies when they are born, the first food you eat in the new year, so many little things that will affect your year or your life. i think of people waiting all winter long to see the first flower of spring or staring at the sky waiting to see a shooting star and just love the imagery of it. this painting is one of my own little made up superstitions and i'd say although lucy might be a bit bothered by having to stand in the cold and wait for jules to catch a snowflake when he finally does all of their good luck will be worth it.
happy spring everyone and i hope everyone is enjoying their first flowers and birds and butterflies, i know i am.
