Spring Has Sprung ....Almost

"Spring Has Sprung ....Almost"  8x81 oil on board

Something I know is there is a shipment of baby trees  coming all the way from Oregon, how do I know?

A lady called Ellen she and her family own a Tree farm. Ellen has been in our lives for quite a while she has a blog that we follow called "growing Gills" she's a photographer and writes about all things in nature and goes along with her lifestyle.

She appreciates everything around her and Spring  I think  is one of her special times, lots going on with the Farm and surrounding areas.

She has the ability to see beauty from her family and where she lives.

She can write poetry so well it can bring you to tears or give you a big smile for the day. We enjoy our long distant friendship and treasure her as something special she even follows our blog!

Ellen this is to go with your afternoon tea I painted this a little while ago as it looks like a fine Spring morning.
Thank you for all you do.

Cheers have a fine day.
Growing Gills cab be seen here  :

I had to show it on the blog, this little painting has been on my mind to do for a while and for some reason gave me a lot of problems but I like the feel of it it's bright and cheerful .

  1. Oh, my goodness. I just made myself some tea, fed the dogs and was heading to bed soon when I saw this. I am so appreciative of your words..and especially of your kindness to me. Truly. I hope that you know how much I treasure the paintings that you have sent me. I see them EVERY day and am astounded at your skills. There is Cleo who is missed every day, there is Alice and the lovely painting that so reminds me of Cezanne's work. And, you know what? I love that tea pot. I just got myself a genuine Brown Betty and am going to write about her one of these days. What a gem you have created..tea pot and daffs. What could be better.
    You are both amazing and I send much affection and appreciation to you both.
    With love, Ellen.
