Spring DawnSaturday, October 31, 2009
It's dark. It's chilly. It's been like this for ages. So long, in fact, that you can barely remember what the warm sun feels like on your skin. A long winter.
Then it finally happens one morning. That shift that you've been waiting for. There's a buzz in the air. The sky is lighter. The air is warmer. Spring has leapt up alive.
And before you know it, it's summer. Tshirts, shorts, ice. Cars break down, overheated on the side of the road. People faint from the heat. It's 25°C! And in 3 weeks, as quick as it arrived, it's gone again. That's summer in Edinburgh.
Well this is a painting of that moment when Spring arrives, with warmth, light and plenty of birdlife. Up that far north it feels like a dawn. The change is that sudden & bright (and welcome!).
The details: 10"x12" original oil painting on canvas board, signed and dated. Finished with a matte varnish for full artwork protection. Available now in the WhereFishSing Art Store for a very reasonable price.
An inspirational gift perhaps?
