Touch of Spring

"Touch of Spring" 16x20" oil on stretched canvas

"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises."
—Pedro Calderon de la Barca
This large 16x20" painting was taken from my friend Angela's photograph on a hike through the woods about a month ago. I always love that magical time of year when you first begin to see soft tender tufts of green emerging on bare branches high in the sky hinting at the promise of spring on the way.

e.e. cummings sums it up so perfectly, "I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural which is infinite, which is yes." 

Thanks for pausing with me for a moment to salute another spring.  nancy
