dreaming of Spring

Up here in the North country of NW Montana, the first snow can be around Thanksgiving time, and then it doesn't completely melt until around May!! Way toooo long!!! For us now bulbs and seeds are still buried under a thick blanket of white, and many of us are longing and dreaming of Spring.  So Kage and I have been creating images that remind us that it will soon come, and will be worth the wait!
About 6 months ago, Kage started a "Lucky 13" group amongst 13 artists. Each month we create a themed image, then pass it on, and eventually each participant will end of with a packet of 13 original pieces of art.  These two images are inspired by the "Botanical" theme, and just happens to be occurring during our waning Winter, with the hope of Spring.

This post is lovely. Both pieces of art are so full of spring and beauty!

I find myself looking at the melted ring of earth around trees these days hoping to see a new shoot of ANYTHING! You know we will all be jumping for joy when spring shows up!

Again very lovely post!
