Rosy spring come on in

Inspire Me Thursday is asking for wallpapers this time around; here is a section of a larger painting (acrylic on crinkled up paper) that I could possibly imagine as a motif for a bright sitting room with large windows into a garden.

Also, I intend it as an invitation for spring (not only at One Single Impression), which so far has come in flowers but not in temperatures:

Easter has come
with daffodils
in snow

This is beautiful! I can imagine it as well, as a wallpaper. We have snow again.....so much for spring start, it's like April weather already, rain, snow, sun, storm.....hope the temperature is getting better soon where you live and you can enjoy the real beautiful spring! Smiles, Anke
Happy Easter!

Oooo this is gorgeous!!! I could see myself with a cup of tea, in a wonderful chair reading a book -- looking into my garden and having this on my walls!!

I love the character of the dark dry-brush marks and how they contrast with the juicy red marks. A very satisfying piece. How big is it? G and GEM

Rosy Spring - I like that. We're still waiting for the daffodils here. We have the snow. Lovely painting and poem. Happy Easter!

like the abstract, swash effects. color choice, too. very impressionist.

This would make pretty wallpaper. It has a great sketchy expressive feeling and very harmonious colors. It is still chilly here, but sunny. I enjoy spring when it is gradual... a little warmer each week!

There was snow in our garden this Easter too. It just doesn't seem right. Your haiku seems right, very nice.

That is one cheerful wallpaper. As cheerful as dafodils peeking out of snow.

I think a lot of folks are having snow for easter: but it's such an early one, so we shouldn't be surprised i guess! What a beautiful poem.

This is very nice. I can see this as wallpaper. Great work.

I agree - this definitely would suit a lovely, bright sitting room. The colors look quite lovely.

My eyes tended to follow all the dark wanderings of the lines. Each piece of redness was like a weigh station along the way.

Great wallpaper!
