The snow has let up a bit and the sky now has a pink tinge to it but the digging out still has to occur. Early this am I received a photo from a young friend who recently relocated to Seattle. It was a beautiful crocus amongst some grasses and trees. It was a reminder that although a blizzard rages here soon spring will arrive.
Which means I really need to take the next step to finishing up the photos and frames I had posted about a few months ago. I cleaned out the closet, hung the picture rail and sorted out the frames. I took two paintings in to be framed that should be back shortly. I picked up painting and hanging supplies for my existing frames.
So today with the colours and textures of that crocus in my head I spent a few hours at the computer making a file of flower pictures for the upstairs “Nanna” bedroom and several files of travel photos for the “gramma” bedroom on the main floor. So once on the short list it is a matter of looking at colours, textures, sizes required as well as the important horizontal or vertical orientation. I thought I would share some of the best photos with you today. If you are in most of Canada reading this you need some colour in your life. If you are on the West coast of North America maybe not. England family and friends might like it for the blue skies that show in most of my work. Although certainly some of the photos my other hand gets credit for.
Enjoy. If you have a particular favourite that you think deserves a spot on the wall please leave me a comment.
And now, fresh from Victoria this am, some lovely tulips.
