spring red

spring melt, mid 80's watercolour by moi

We are having an early spring and the red dogwood is blazing. Seeing it, loving it, remembering early spring paintings I did when the kids were little. Railway Street, 1986, watercolour

These images are from slides. All I have left of those paintings. Above photo is from the side of our road.

You've captured the expansive joy of Spring in your work. Love the juxt. of images of the "natural world" and your vision of it.

Lovely paintings! Red just says "I've arrived", no matter the context, it is one of my favourite colours.
