Dreams of Spring, oil on canvas, 36″ x 48″


 Jaunty Jonquils in a Springtime Meadow,
As the sweet breeze blows soft,
They tip their sunny yellow heads and bow,
to the Season and her spirit soars aloft
Dancing with the whispy clouds
Singing with the buzz of the bees
Throwing off Winter’s shrouds
to the promise of Summer’s trees….
