Spring Fling

There is a day every spring when the world comes to life. On the first warm sunny day people emerge from their houses and remember that they are social creatures. We say hello to our neighbors and wave to fellow gardeners. I love this day.

But because it is early spring the shadows are still deep and cold. Clouds are lurking and evening comes early making the few sunny moments more exciting and urgent.

This painting is four feet wide and is oil on canvas.


  1. What a stunning combination, the snowy ermines and the showy tulips. Great work as always. Nice to see mum and dad too.

  2. I agree with Daniel completely!

    What a wonderful scene, Jean!

    Detailed, colorful, and dare I say magical even!
