Welcome to Spring - Original Oil Painting of Daffodils / Narcissus

Welcome to Spring Everyone! 

My sweet hearted son was so overjoyed to see this first sign of spring that I let him cut them and bring them into the studio to be painted.  We had the most enthusiastic conversation about the different parts of a flower, the beautiful colors and why they come up after the snow melts. Now, they remind me not only of this wonderful season but the unashamed joy of youth. I imagine them as three children from the same family. Similar in appearance but each one is unique.
