Spring Showers

Crash Bang Wallop - it's May!

Spring has finally arrived as a green haze wraps itself over the shrubbery.

This mixed media piece was inspired by April showers but finished on a sunny May evening with a crisp and cold Chablis running through my veins to welcome in the season.

Now that I've finished with my romp through the A to Z of blog posts, it's nice to catch up with a few artistic challenges. This one's for the Artists' Playroom as we explore spring showers and flowers.

Dripping onto the page is a mixture of inks, acrylics, oil pastels, coloured pencil, acrylic pen and rain!


  1. Gorgeous my dear!! Spring beauty here!!

    Hugs Giggles

  2. Love the glowing yellow and deep blue. Nice composition and the drips really loosen up the whole piece. Thanks!

  3. Such a soft and beautiful image...and choice of colours.

  4. I LOvE daisies, they are such cheerful flowers! These are just gorgeous! At last Spring is here! YaY!!! :)

  5. I love this so soft and speaks of spring rain.

  6. There are those flowers that I am growing to love more and more. Just seeing them is soothing to me. :) I am going to start checking out some of these challenges that you enter. They seem right up my ally and might be a great way to improve my studio work. Happy Weekend!

  7. I love the softness of this and the way the background embraces the flowers. Very pretty!
