Spring has Sprung :)


It has been an exciting few weeks watching Spring unfold slowly before our eyes. Each day when I drive to work I enjoy the green getting greener, the gentle buds on the trees pop open and display that soft pink against the lime green.....then those dark purple trees in the distance are such a lovely background for that new green and pinks and yellows.... The brown, grey earth is coming alive with color before our eyes, the bees are back... the birds are singing their little hearts out!!!


Have you noticed...Mama duck is hiding... and papa sits alone on the banks.... she is on her nest ....soon we will see those little ones dotting the ponds...
With all this color going on I had to sit and try to paint it all... I can never really get it all down on paper...but it is fun trying. I am so glad color is back in our landscape again... I think green is God's favorite color :)..... there are so many shades....

I don't see sheep on my way to work , but Lambs are born in the spring and this is one of my favorite things to paint, Sheep. .... Here is Mama and shy baby....

I hope you are enjoying each day of Spring as the earth once again rises to Praise and Worship its creator with all its wonder and beauty.... don't miss it... it will take your breath away...
