Spring’s tender moments

There is a quote that says…
Life is a party but you are the one to hang the garlands.
May these photos be the garlands I am hanging on this post
As an ode to nature’s creation and its inhabitants.

P.s There is not much to add besides that I carefully chose each & every photo that spoke in a unique way to my heart as I hope it will do to you ­čÖé

The sun has lost itself among the bushes
Brushed against the branches leaving a
Trail of light on its way…

As a Jack in the box spring
Just popped out of a winter
Never begun not wanting to
Be forgotten fighting for
Its place in the kingdom
Of seasons…

This is the end result of the photo below but I’ll give you the stages in two more photos and a little something to accompany it.

Wind blowing through the dunes
Disturbing the peace of winter’s
Settled sand combing the weeds
Sleek to its desire inviting the
Lovers of a wild coast at its best

P.s My apologies to all my followers for not getting back this week as quickly as planned with the restoration of my photos but I hope Thursday will be a relatively calmer day to work hard at it…
Thank you for being patient ­čÖé

This blogger http://oilpastelsbymary.com/ does the most amazing drawing in oil pastels and inspired me so much that I went out to buy myself (I was lucky to find them on sale!) Sennelier oil pastels in the basic colors to try out the novelty of texture & technique required. This is the results of having a load of fun with my imagination ­čÖé

I had no idea which brand to choose but only asked for one that would be easier to mix & work with. I got really lucky because I found out later that a lot of artist prefer working with it.
