Dreaming of Spring

blue purple iris matted

Sometimes in the cold and slush,
the starkness and the blustery winds of Winter…

I dream of the warmth and beauty,
the colors and the gentle breezes of Spring.

blue purple iris watercolor

After a few long, cold, busy wintry days, it was nice to relax and loosen up and dream of blue and purple irises that will bloom in Spring…

and splash paint on paper

bringing them to life

with glimmers of hope

and the promise of renewal.

Cheers & Hugs,
Jodi

  1. I love watercolors and Irises! I have one that I brought from the lake 3 years ago! It was a hot day and it was a mess. But, each year it grows taller and I think will it reach the sky hahaha. My mom said her dad, Adolph loved Irises and she is sure he is watching and smiling! This is what your lovely painting reminded me of this morning! xxxx

  2. This is soooo lovely, Jodi! 💜💜💜 Love your looseness in your paintings like this and how you allow the magic of watercolor happen with the colors blend together. Not everyone can do this, including myself! So happy you like it too. 😄

  4. I loved this, Jodi! Both the flowers and the words! BTW, I wanted to order some cards from your website. Is it set up to do that securely with a credit card? You know me and the internet…I’ve always got to check first!
