Spring Cleaning

This is the companion piece for Starsweeper, the painting I posted last week. Ultramarine blue (in glass, it is cobalt) is my favorite color, and many of my pieces feature this wonderful hue. So this is for Paint Party Friday's question, do you have a favorite color? The answer is an enthusiastic yes!
Two years ago, both Starsweeper and Spring Cleaning were badly damaged while in the care of a neglectful gallery owner. They are tucked in a corner in my studio and I haven't had the heart to look at them since. This summer, though, I'm going to gather my courage and look at them to see if I can repair them. I'd love to have them back.
