Desperately Seeking Spring

Here upon the Plains of the Midwest,
Spring has yet to arrive.

Winter, with all its might, still holds a
strong grasp on the landscape, teasing
us almost daily with gray skies, cold
temperatures, and snow.

It is an unusual turn of events, that
Mother Nature has yet to step in and
give us even the tiniest hints that a
new season might be just around the
bend.

Nevertheless, taking shelter from the
continued cold, I am nestled into this
studio of mine, madly creating the most
lush textured landscapes...

hoping to bring just a bit of Spring to my world.

Beautiful...I hope spring arrives in Kansas soon, for your sake. The robins will appear, little flowers will begin to raise their green heads from their winter bed. In the meantime, how lovely to have such an escape.

I may be traveling through your neck of the woods in the near future. My daughter has taken a job in Creede, CO. Kansas is on the route. I know I'll be thinking of you when I cross the border!

Wow. I love these Tracie! Very yummy.
I had to click and look at the medium you are using. Mesiums can be so alluring. I don't have that one in my toolbox, nor do I have little stretched frames. Seeing this post makes me WANT. Thank you.

They are very cool. Dare I say it, I think spring might be here in Maine... It's been a weird winter here, and spring has arrived early. I'm not complaining...

These canvases are quite lovely...such texture and depth! I really like the abstract form of these landscapes. Makes me want to burrow in from the snow and create something, too. Thanks for the inspiration, my sweet friend!
