I was thinking of submitting "paint your favorite spring flower" as a challenge idea until I realized that some people just do not like to paint flowers! So then I thought how spring is so much more than just tulips. Everyone has their own unique image that comes to mind when they think of spring. For me it is this photo I took a few years ago at the "Queens Cottage" in Kew Gardens, London England. The bright green new leaves, a carpet of blue flowers, and the perfect thatched roof cottage.
Feel free to paint all or a section of this image, or show us what you think of when you think of spring. Just remember to face the challenge and paint something new. Resist the temptation to dig through your archives for a painting that "fits"
Please be sure to follow the spirit and the letter of the challenge.
For example, each submission must be painted after the challenge is posted.
