Spring - SOLD

 Spring - SOLD
acrylic on stretched canvas 7" x 5"
Available from my Daily Paintworks gallery

You know when it arrives.

The sun is brighter, the air is warmer.  You swear you think the grass is getting green again and there's a promise of daffodils and tulips poking their way through the soil.

You fling open every window in the house to release the winter worn air and replace it with the new season.

Then you start cleaning.

I can just about feel the breeze coming in through that window. Gorgeous pastel

Actually its acrylic, rough and loose over black canvas. But it does look like pastel doesn't it?

I love the stories that you tell, both with your artwork and with the words you write. This piece is so pleasant to look at and brings to mind all kinds of thoughts and stirrings of the heart. Funny how an open window can affect us, isn't it? I also like "The Catch" that you just posted! The colors you used really make it expressive. And the lines moving throughout hold the viewer for an extra long time. Very nicely done!

Its funny how images bring memories isn't it? Its that connection to an image is what steers a purchase of a painting. Either a direct connection or emotional response. The window and a breeze catching the sheer fabric is evocative to most everyone at some point.

I love looking through old photographs and may do justice to The Catch at a future date.

Thanks for taking time to comment.

This is beautiful and you have captured the feeling perfectly.

I miss spring :(

Interesting that you started with black. It really gives the right feel, a great contrast with the light coming on the curtain.

Thanks Sue. Yes, not having distinct seasons must feel odd. HOwever, a little of your warmth wouldn't go amiss. :)

Its something I've been trying lately Cat and I like the effect it gives. It really makes the colours pop against the dark.
