Flower Power, a delightful burst of color in Spring
Delicate spring colors replicate the delicate blossoms of spring in this abstract painting. Bowls of fresh spring flowers invite the viewer to imagine the blossoming of new life in early spring. After the dreary neutral landscapes of winter, especially in Northern climes, sunshine, color and warmth beckon the viewer, with thoughts of enjoying the outdoors, enjoying new varieties of flowers and plants, planning home landscaping, flower beds, floral displays and spring bouquets. Hanging this picture on your wall will create this special delight all year round.
Flower Power is my response to this feeling of delight in the rebirth and renewal of flowers and their display at a local flower show in early spring.
Flower shows are a feature of early spring for residents of northern climates. After a long, harsh winter, these shows rejuvenate the spirits with an infusion of colors and scents and the promise of new growth. Rows of plants, flowers, shrubs and trees beckon. Enthusiastic and “armchair” gardeners alike sally through the displays mentally organizing and planning colorful floral displays. They create anticipation and stir the imagination with new possibilities. Even those who have no intention of planting their own gardens are drawn to these refreshing displays.
Flower Power, as an abstract interpretation, allows you, the viewer to reflect on the joyous promise of color and vitality in the beautiful spring flowers. Perhaps you will enjoy thinking about planting a garden. Perhaps you will think about creating beautiful bouquets of spring flowers to decorate your home. This painting will speak to your feelings of harmony and well being all year long; it is bursting with the promise of new growth, sunshine and warmth that gladdens one’s heart and raises the spirits. So, no matter where you choose to hang it, it will bring spring cheer into your home all year long.
