Is it, Spring Yet?!

Many are silently wondering, “Is it, Spring Yet”?!   Soon……. I’m sure if you go investigate outdoors you’ll see plenty of small signs that tell you Spring has indeed begun.

Even if,  there’s been a late storm and cold snap to delay the main event another week or so.


I’m sitting in the Southern Hemisphere.

The last day of Summer has passed.  I’m so very Relieved.  The final day of TDH.

I’m sure I wouldn’t care for  the  -20 degrees and ice storms either.  But,  I assure you, I look forward  to 8 months of tolerable weather.

Which means, more Zen Strolls!



This lush lavender flower was taken on a Zen Stroll, my daughter and I. The Spring Gardens, brilliant.

I won’t take any credit for the photography. But I will take a wee bit for the wonderful daughter, of course!

I absolutely adore this photo!  ….. wish I’d have taken it!   No,  I take that back!!

I’m glad someone else did  –  and will be encouraged by her beautiful image and any sales that may be.



Me.  Never really a “Purple”  fan, but this one makes me willing to broaden my horizons.






Is it, Spring Yet?!!

The act of creation, in any media is a fascinating and magical process. I simply love to create. Expressing in color, line, tone, texture - as if, they were words upon a page. Creating a uniquely me, interpretation. Enjoy More of my "one-of-a-kind" expressive art at and,

    1. Thanks for sharing!! yes high heat makes me ill. But Its great, to have meditative strolls through nature on days that are tolerable. I gather you live somewhere that gets abit on the ugly side of hot, as well?


    1. Thank you so much Nancie, I’m glad you enjoyed this! and I will tell the photographer!
      most (98%) Photographs ……. are never used to paint from actually!!! I usually much prefer to paint from either real life; or the deeply ingrained remembrance of the place….in order to obtain the spirit, the feeling.
      when I use photos,
      I’m much too inclined to be a little clone and try to photocopy the thing and lose all the heart, the Feeling of it! and then, I am sad….

  1. Well, Spring is beginning here, with the flowers starting to appear. My camellia bushes are going to be spectacular this year. Congratulations and thanks to your daughter for such a beautiful image 🙂
