'Ah, Spring'
Oil 5 x 7

Day 72

We've lived in our house for over twenty years, and I will
never forget the first Spring, and our surprize and joy at seeing these
 lovely purple crocus growing all through our lawn.  Each year,
as soon as we get a warm day, they start to pop out all
over, and often in the most unexpected places!
I wasn't able to get out with the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air
 Painters yesterday when they went to Wildwood yesterday, so
 I took advantage of the beautiful weather today and went out
into my own back yard to do some plein air painting - so much fun!

If you would like to see more of my work,

interested in purchasing any of my paintings you see
here on this blog, please contact me.

I love the first flowers of spring. These are so gorgeous, and beautifully painted. Love the mauve and yellow combo.

Thank you, Catherine. I love the first flowers of Spring too - even more so after a hard winter!

A really beautiful painting and I think your brush strokes are magical in this one, so free, so lovely! I would so love a yard full of these beauties!

Les premières fleurs du printemps sont toujours émouvantes... et si délicates, tout comme votre peinture.
