A gift of an early Spring after the storms of England.

The February storms have passed and these first few days of March have been amazing for the early buds and blossoms of the hedgerow and woods.  While walking the tiny country lanes I find that everywhere has  come alive with the first flowers of Spring. Snowdrops are fading now to create the space for daffodils and celandines and the first of the cherry blossom are in company of singing birds calling their mate home for the evening.
The soft Spring light after the rains has inspired new paintings of nature as it returns to new life.

The fresh greens and softness of creamy pinks against the dark branches of trees.

Beautiful calm, sunny days with whispers of mist over the water.

  1. Love the Spring photos. Your paintings are stunning and capture the essence of Spring. I love the blackbird and the king wren painting. You are very talented.

  2. Thank you Caroline. I was watching 2 hares leaping around the other day, they are such magical creatures.

  3. hello Amanda,
    your spring comes so much sooner than ours. Our snow is melting now, but it will take weeks for it to melt away. I think i am 6 weeks at least till i see a flower or two...

    your art is so lovely. such sweet heart shaped pieces with wonderful gold accents.

    lovely spring to you ~

  4. What a lovely walk you must have had to take such gorgeous photos. :) I love your new paintings, they're stunning.
