C'mon Spring

Dreaming of Spring
9"x9" 90lb watercolour art journal page, acrylic, pastel, collage, ink

I want Spring.

I want warm air and the smell of damp earth.

I want sunshine.

I want a crazy road trip...driving fast under a huge prairie sky, no particular destination.

I want to see things sprout and grow, my toes in green grass, my hands in dirt.

I want to not be cold (so tired of being cold).

I want to burn my old black winter jacket and heavy boots.

I want to go for a long walk, without shivering, or slipping on the ice, or numb fingers and a runny nose.

I want to stop to investigate flowers and leaves, and find little rusted bits to make into art.

I want to open the windows of my house.

I want to take canvases outside and paint in the sunshine.

I want picnics.




I want green, in every conceivable tint & shade.

And did I mention sunshine? More than once?

Grey sky again today, and I just can't seem to get fully warm. But it is coming, just around the corner. Spring will be here soon.


  1. i agree. with all of it. today in ottawa we haves sunshine and melting snow. woohoo for that! and its 5pm and its still sunny out! we are getting there! ((hugs))

  2. Should have been here with me in Edmonton... beautiful blue sky and warm enough to walk... though the ice... damn ice... going to break my neck one of these days.

  3. You guys are tough. Beautiful artwork. deb

  4. Fields of contentment!

  5. Oh E, me too, me too! Lovely art though, despite the lack of green in your winter. hang in there, eh? It's coming, like a slow train, but it will get here.
