Signs of Spring

watercolor | 2009
Last Friday Brian, his brother, sister in law, and I went for an evening walk through my neighborhood. It was awesome weather and the day itself was sunny and warm. The day before however was all rain. What do you get when you mix the two? Beautiful spring flowers! We saw many daffodils! On my favorite flower list, daffodils aren't near the top, yellow isn't a favorite color of mine, and whenever I see them I think of Alice in Wonderland or tutu's. I dunno why.

But when I decided to paint some daffodils and I looked at many pictures, there are so many different kinds!!! White ones, yellow ones, reddish orange ones, some yellow with red, some white with yellow. It's crazy the variety!

Alas, the reason I so enjoyed painting and expressing the daffodil is because it's a sign. A symbol. A gleam of light to give us hope. Spring is here, and all will come alive. Take in that deep breath of fresh air filled with sun light. That's what I'm talkin' about! :D

i love daffodils because they are so hearty and they are always the first to pop up out of the ground. they originate from mountain regions, so they can withstand a lot. they are definitely a favorite of mine!

Ho, I love those flowers !
Because they are beautiful, but simple. But also, because they came with spring :)
