Kelly - Painting 34

(Acrylic, 16x20 Stretched Canvas)

"The Rush of Spring" is my first acrylic painting since I finished painting 100 of last year. I loved that little American Tree Sparrow painting, and I think (in the back of my mind) I might have been afraid to paint again with acrylics because I didn't think I'd be able to recapture the joy I felt from that painting...but...the challenge is all about growth and overcoming fears, so I decided it was time to break the acrylics out again. I jumped back in with a raucous representation of spring...a field of tulips bursting with color.

Delightful bursting of color... I can imagine this enriching the wall of a fine restaurant or an airy gourmet-style cafe. More please!

It is so alive, with color, pattern movement all balanced with the greens.
Funny how we crave color this time of year!
