Description of Promise of Spring
“PROMISE OF SPRING” 48″X60″ This large painting features a traditional bird nest,
but this time three croquet balls fill the nest. Underlying is an old style croquet mallet.
The annual nest building and watching birds hatch their eggs and following the chicks
until they fledge is always to me the “promise of spring” with the continuing cycle of life.
A visitor to my studio saw the painting in progress (with eggs in the nest) and said the “Promise of Spring”
to him was being able to return to Highlands-Cashiers and play croquet again. I loved his
remark – hence, the painting was modified. It is nicely framed (See second photo).
