Springtime Inspiration

The spring is a delightful time when everything outside comes back to life. It is the only time of year that I have some problem getting work done because I would rather be gathering inspiration then working. All of a sudden you can see the green of small leaves just thinking about unfolding. The air smells different and full of life. The sunshine calls to you and there are birds everywhere.

Today was such a day....and I had to take some time and just go out sit under the huge evergreen in my backyard to listen, watch and feel springtime coming. Small chickadees were very curious and hopped down the tree to a few feet of me to see what I was doing.  But I was still, just observing and listening to the grass grow, the leaves unfurl and feeling the changes that spring brings.

Here are a few paintings that I have done to celebrate spring.
