Spring Stream
8 x 10
Available at Deborah Paris Fine Art

Yesterday when I drove into town, I noticed that my neighbor's pasture was not only green but littered with new Angus calves. Today my pear tree is covered with blossoms. Spring is most definitely here. Even though most of the trees are bare and the fields are still ochre colored, that earthy spring smell is in the air.

I've spent most of this week getting ready for my virtual classes, the first of which starts tomorrow. There have been a flurry of sign ups this week, so there are just a few spots left in each one.

Wow, Deborah. These are colors I love.

Beautiful tranquil painting. Love the thought of those new Angus calves :))

Katherine Kean said...

Lovely painting - represents the season well.

Miki Willa said...

The warmth of the grasses and tree truly speak of spring. What a great painting. Of course, I like all your paintings.

Jala Pfaff said...

I noticed this painting is less "dark," (referencing the comment someone gave you about your paintings always being dark).

Thank you Peggy and Elizabeth!

I'm glad you like it Katherine. Its a bit early but it felt right.

I had fun with those greens, Miki!

Hi Jala. Thank you. Yes, it is a bit higher key- just coincidental. More to do with the season than my palette, I think.
