Upon returning from the beach, our neighborhood was glowing! In perfect timing to celebrate Easter, all is abloom: pear trees, plum trees, cherry, tulip, and peach trees, forsythia, daffodils, crocuses…just about everything it seems!
I keep thinking…it looks like popcorn and firecrackers everywhere! The pear and cherry trees (the non-weeping sort) look like someone strung popcorn balls on dark branches. And how I love the look of cherry trees with their ends sticking out a foot or two with no blooms, then all of a sudden, BANG! right at the end, a popcorn bloom or two or three! Love that! Looks like a firecracker has gone off in shades of white and pink! Even the weeping cherries look like the firecrackers that burst and then droop, popcorn balls falling to the ground. Wow!
And the forsythia, not pictured here, look like firecrackers on the ground, twisting and twirling their bright gold fronds every which a way.
Would that I were a poet…to somehow capture the explosiveness of Spring! Sketches will just have to do:)

So light and easy – I can feel the breeze – Love your loose style and subtle colors. I think these are very good! And I do think you captured the sparkle of excitement in the air!
Wow – I love these! Gorgeous!!!
I was walking yesterday (my Easter resolution) and thought – I wish I could draw these trees!! I’m so grateful that you did.
Happy Easter, Jennifer!
You have captured your excited in these! And it was so well said up there, that I have no doubt that you could be a poet if you really wanted!
These are absolutely delightful! The blossoms and leaves are popping out everywhere here too.
Ahhh Spring! You expressed the joy.
Both your watercolors AND your words are poetry already, Jennifer!
These are so lovely and loose and fresh, wonderful!!
Gotta love these artistic splashes of life! Beautiful work!!!
Lovely spring feeling, I can just imagine the scene.
Actually, I think you are also a poet. A very poetic thought – “popcorn and firecrackers” — I love it!
