I had such fun doing this – ‘spring joy’ certainly is happening all around me – the birds are doing their thing and yesterday I saw a butterfly. What a difference the sun and birdsong makes to our soul after the long, grey days of winter. Don’t get me wrong, I love those days too as they give me the opportunity to slow right down, go inward and find the resources inside me to get me through. With this painting I simply began by choosing colours that I love, that lift my heart – the shapes and flowers arrived, surprising for me as I’m not a ‘flowery’ person, except in the garden.
