Sing a Song of Spring
egg tempera on stretched/mounted calfskin vellum
One morning in early May, I took a walk on a busy local trail that leads through woodlands into a swamp habitat. The air was full of spring songs and it wasn’t long before I heard one of my favorite songs, followed by a familiar brilliant flash of orange. Contrast that with the beautiful shimmering blue of an early spring sky, and you just have magic!
