Crocus

This week has been a roller coaster of temperatures -- days begin in the 30sF and rise to the 60s -- and even though the evenings are so very cold, trees have broken bud, daffodils and crocuses are poking their green leaves through brown, still cold, earth ...

It's been such an intense week, I sketched this from a photo reference because of its cheerful and bright feeling ...

Cara, you're using the whole page!! ;D. This is perfectly lovely---the colors so soft and translucent. Wonderful sign of spring.

Very Pretty! I love that color, it is very cheerful with the little orange centers. BTW it's been snowing all day here today!

I'm sorry to hear you've been having a rough week but I'm delighted to see this lovely harbinger of spring in my favorite color. It's so perky and bright!

Lin, this is absolutely beautiful! You captured the transluscence of the petals so perfectly -- I think this is one of my favorites so far!
