The garden centers have opened and an array of color notes strum through the aisles. After a long winter, bursting blooms tantalize one, begging to be brought home. They sing of long summer days and gardens dancing with color.
Although it is a cold rainy day, they imbue my studio with cheer as they smile back. I promise to give them eternal life as they become immortalized in paint. Their lighthearted nature reminds me of children absorbed in play; where only the present moment bears meaning.
It was a cold and rainy spring day when I decided to take things into my own hands and bring spring cheer into my studio. So off I went to the garden centers on a treasure hunt for brilliant color and smiling blooms. As I shivered picking out my subjects, I smiled at the thought of being in my nice warm studio painting these cheerful blooms. I was on a mission to ignore this cold spring and make my own music!
What a joy it was to share a space with these special blooms. I love pansies. They have such smiling sweet faces and immediately make me happy. As music surrounded my studio and rain fell outside, I travelled to a joyful place while paint flowed.
I hope you also get to experience some quiet times surrounded by the cheerfulness of Spring blooms! Do you find pleasure in new blooms? What are some of your favorite flowers?
Happy Spring Everyone!
