"The Promise Of Spring" Oil paint on prepared board 10"x12"
Finally, the new sights and sounds of spring, the honking of the ducks and geese overhead, the croaking of the frogs, the buds on the trees opening, the long awaited awakening of the streams and creeks with their rushing "black water", and that first robin, seem to be just a few sure signs that spring is here. Now is the time to "be out there", to get rejuvenated with the things that begin to come alive with the warmth of spring..
The winter colours give way to the more "pastel shades" only to gradually deepen as the warmer spring days edge towards the longer days of summer. It just seems as if a completely new palette is suggested.
Anxious days of painting lie ahead...
..'til next, take care.
