It doesn’t take much

It doesn’t take much to make this sketcher happy after five months of winter.

    Always wonderful to see those first flowers. In ND it was amazing how things survived but it was the snow cover that kept them so. Love your painting. But where is the one of the fly?

  7. Nice painting,very cheering. What kind of flowers are they?

    Beautiful painting! How nice to read and see this post, it brings back a fogotten favorite part of seasonal change, the spring crocus bloom from my days living on Long Island.

    • Thanks Gil. The change of seasons is especially miraculous this year because the winter was so long and so cold. In the first few weeks of spring I walk around my garden every day, marvelling at how each plant survives. I think I would miss the change of seasons if I lived in a warm climate.

  9. Your sketch just made me smile! Happy Spring to you!
