Painting Spring


Water soaked grey sky
pure tones of birch
magnolia, forsythia
spring green leaves


Raindrop music
fills the air
my paint brush
drips with color


I made these photographs and wrote this poem back in April of 2008, posting it on the blog I was then tending.  I’m going back through all of the posts now and considering putting together a small e-book to repurpose some of the writing and photography I was doing at the time.

Spring, being the season of rebirth finds me also at work on a new Website and hope to have it up and running before too long.  I’ll let you know more as it progresses.  In the meantime next week will be all about getting my studio cleaned up and getting back to work on my memoir.  There are many new ideas filling my thoughts.

    Thanks Patti. It is a lovely and delightful time of year as I expect it is out your way too.

  3. My, oh my, how these images tug at my heart. Spring is the season I miss most back east! Gorgeous, and I’m so glad to hear your website will be coming soon and the book is shaping up! Hooray for you!

      I would be missing it too, especially this year. The rains have brought the trees, shrubs and all other plants to their peak magnificence this year and it’s been wonderfully cool which makes things last a little longer.
