Do you know any one who doesn’t have a serious case of Spring Fever right now? I’m here in Central Pennsylvania and we’ve had one of our toughest winters. It’s not too pretty out there just now with fallen branches, gray chunks of snow, and brown grass. Unless you decide to look in a different direction or seek out Spring elsewhere. Start by looking up! The sky is already looking more like cerulean blue and cobalt blue mixed together (watercolor paint names).
Next, try walking into any brick and mortar store or an online shop like Etsy. Pastel colors, bunnies, grasses, chicks, daffodils, and eggs are everywhere. Here’s what I saw in Pottery Barn last weekend.
Terrain is bursting with Spring! Daffodil and paper white bulbs are piled in bins. Pussy willow bunches are displayed all over – don’t you secretly want to pinch off a fuzzy bud? Our children loved doing that when they were wee.
I was seeking Spring colors in the art room too. No grays/whites/browns/blacks in here! Finding a picture of daffodils from last year inspired this painting. Daffodils are the official flower of March, as well as one of the harbingers of Spring. Bravely rising from the cold earth, their bright yellows and oranges cheer us. Red tulips often are are their garden-mates. Here’s the art that came out of my case of Spring Fever. Good luck with yours! It’s not long now.
