Looking back at this past week it does feel like spring – doesn’t it? Apparently I felt the same way this time last year OR maybe it was wishful thing at the time… Regardless, spring always feel like a welcome change after staying cooped up in our houses all winter long.
Like many critters that roam the earth, we start to come out of our little holes and spread our wings as we emerge from our winter hibernation. Some people go for long walks, while others run. I myself love doing both. Just breathing in that fresh air can do wonders to your mood, lift your spirits and place a pleasant smile on your face.
Springtime is also synonymous with the blooming season. Even now where I work, little stray wild flowers are beginning to poke through the ground with small bursts of color. It is wonderful! I love watching things bloom all around me. I adore even seeing simple grass makes its transition to dull brown to a lush green. With all the color coming alive around me, I can’t help but admire this season!
This entry pays tribute to all things spring; the color, the flowers, the lovey green fields and all the people I see enjoying it. My sketch is inspired by artist Lisa Congdon from her drawing class hosted by Creativebug “Sketchbook Exploration” . While my drawing is inspired by her class, I infused my own flavor into this sketch by using my own preferred art material, namely my favorite Derwent Inktense Blocks, and added my own twist to some of the hand-drawn flowers. I hope you take some time this upcoming week to look all around and experience the wonder of season. You may become inspired enough to draw or write about it.
Until next post…
