Ok, I think this is the piece for the miniature show at the Hockaday Museum. The artwork isn't due until late April so I have time to change my mind. The frame is going to be a lime green lacquer - yummy - a picture of which I will post at a later date. It is called, as you recall, "Signs of Spring."
And here, another sure sign of spring. I don't know how she avoids all the deer poop.
