Spring is nature's way of reminding us that every day is worthy of celebration. The cold, long days of winter are fading away, so we are inspired by the warming temperatures, rains, and the emergence of growth; from the first Snow Drops and Crocus, to the full bloom of leaves on the trees.

Blue skies, wildflowers and a secret path through the blossoms. It seems like a perfect spring day to me.

This painting, the signature piece for my "A Conversation With Trees" exhibition, won BEST MIXED MEDIA at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington Juried Exhibition. The cycle of life, all to be seen in a forest — new growth, life, decay and regeneration. Of all the pieces in this collection, this was the painting I had most difficulty parting with.

One of my memories of spring as a child, was the glorious feeling of waking up on a beautiful, sunny spring morning to the sound of birds, and anxiously waiting until I could go outside to play. What is spring without the sound of birds?

This is my favourite tree on our property. I have photographed it many times, usually from the ground looking up to where the tree meets the sky, marveling at it's height and the tangle of branches reaching for light. It is at its best early spring. I find it unfortunate, that most people pay attention to only that which is directly ahead, that which is within their frame of vision, rarely looking up, never letting themselves experience the beautiful giants that trees are.
