Spring



Signs of Spring are everywhere just now, the sweet birds singing, green sprouting everywhere, sunshine warm and days so long now....so I celebrate with my art, wishing you all a wonderful Spring!

Linking to Soartful Challenges,  Paint Party Friday, Art Journal Journey and Sunday Sketches (Blue Chair Diary)




A couple of weeks ago I had  a wonderful week-end in a favorite place with my man, this was our view from our hotel room. Here too you can see the first signs of Spring on that beautiful tree.





The other day as I was having a walk in my village I had to stop and take this picture, so pretty!





A few days ago we woke up to a misty green morning, very beautiful and atmospheric. This is the view from my living room window. We are very lucky to have a forest just in front and I love seeing it transform at this time of year from bare brown branches to wonderful shades of bright green!

I absolutely love the color palette you used! What media did you use? The green has a slightly grainy look to it. Are they . . . watercolor crayons? Pastels? (I'm always curious about media.)

I just love this series you have been doing with the happy swirls and flowers and the whole art piece shouting "Joy!". AnnD has asked about your media - and I would quite like to know this too - your pictures have precision but also a lovely flow.
And you've given us three lovely photographs too, the wonderful Amsterdam, so evocative of the city, and Valbonne with the pale yellow and lilac and a beautiful composition, and then the misty greens of the third. What a truly magical area you live in.

Oh your picture is so happy! I can tell your spirit is soaring with the Spring air. Thank you for the wonderful art and also your pics. It is very interesting to me to see your northern spring as I live in the Southern Hemisphere and it is Autumn here.
