Painting: Alberta Spring


Alberta Spring
12"x 12"x ¾"
Acrylic on Canvas
2009

This is the embodiment of a prairie spring. The bare trees, glimpses of lush green to come and the faded snowbanks. The sky out here in the springtime is a fresh vivid blue that can at once be warm in the sunlight and chilly in the shadow. Hopefully our remaining drifts of snow will soon disappear.

A new painting! Yeah! And a beauty at that!!! I really like the composition in this one, Michelle. Those trees are wonderful. I can hardly wait till that snow is all gone. Got an e-mail from someone in Colorado today, and they are getting another dump of snow! *sigh* Hopefully we will not become the land of perpetual winter!
