Spring Is Near


12x16" oil on canvas painting. Also available as a limited edition archival quality giclée print (edition of 200).

The fields are still white from the snow,
But waters hum in vernal game
And wake up sleepy banks below,
They run, they sparkle and proclaim.

They herald news to every side:
"Here comes the spring, here comes the spring,
We're messengers of young spring tide,
She's sent us out, fresh news we bring!"
— Fyodor Tiutchev, "Vernal Waters"
