“Spring”

Oil on Canvas - 20" x 20""

Finished March 21, 2024

Concept:

 

I've been tossing around some ideas for its title, and I've settled on simply "Spring" —the selling point was that Spring started the day before I finished it. 

Right after I finished my last painting, I got to searching for a reference photo of tree saplings and was on an e-commerce site looking at pictures, and I noticed when I zoomed in on a photo the top of the tree looked like a ballerina dancing. As weird as it may seem, this image is nearly a direct representation of that image. I added water droplets to emphasize the actual size of the tree top. I wanted to create a sense of how we all feel when we first walk into the sunlight on a beautiful sunny day.
