Art We Heart: Spring

:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)

Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.

Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...

Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!

:thumb292604413:I want to hear from you!
Do you play in the rain?
Does spring inspire you?

Lovely choices. Rain is good, if it means I get to curl up with hot chocolate, in front of a warm fire place, if I have to go out - rain is not so good then.

To me rain is nothing more than a sad day I feel like the sky is crying but when its spring it's as if everything is new and hopeful for a new beginning

Of course I like to play in the rain! It is pure joy, unless it is really cold.
It does inspire me. I have birthday in April (btw, it was yesterday) and this inspires me, too :D
But more in words than in drawings :)

Everyone else hates the rain.
I know hates a strong word, but they do.
But who knows what the rain can bring?
Flowers and puddles and dew.
The rain is a mysterious thing...

I believe Springrain as a great rebirth of everything that slept over the winter. I love to play in the warm spring rain. Personally Spring Inspires me to draw and create better work than I normally do.

Spring rain holds many fond memories for me. When I was younger, if it started raining my siblings and I would rush outside just to play in the rain.
Though now I just prefer to listen to it, rain can be very calming at times. :)

I love springtime, and I like when it rains, it makes me feel free, but I love it when the sun shines and the rainbow appears :love: , if the sky is grey... I get depressed
but what I really love of springtime, is that is the life's season!!! there are lots of flowers, and young animals (like the birds) thar appears after the long winter :D

I don't play in the rain. I don't like being wet and cold.
Does spring inspire you?
As the old saying goes, I think anything will inspired me to do something. When I think of spring, I think of Issac Shephard, Cherry blossom and 5cm persecond. Spring is very representational. New beginnings and endings too.

I do play in the rain sometimes. I can't say that Spring inspires me, but I do love it. It's so beautiful! And you get more time in the day. (Which I love. :love:)

I never play in the rain, I hate getting wet in any other situation than taking a shower or going into a pool. Plus my clothes and shoes will get muddy :ohnoes:

Spring does inspire me, maybe not much artistically (unless I feel like doing a nature scene with lots of vegetation at the time) But I have a garden to attend to, and Spring is my wake up call to start monitoring it after slacking off over winter because nothing really needs to be done then. I guess it motivates me to get started fresh again with many things actually. That's probably how "Spring cleaning" came about - it's time to shake off all the baggage built up since last Spring =p

Spring brings pollen, which is absolutely irritating (although I have grown strong enough to become all but immune against it). Anyway, Spring is the harbinger of Summer, and 2 words: SUMMER VACATION! :relax:

Love to play in the rain - used to run around barefoot in the spring, on the wet, mossy grass, racing the dog around the barn - and usually took a slide and got soaked like a slip'n'slide at least once, lol! :D

As a new photographer I love spring for its new birth in everything around me. From the tiny little wild flowers to the big oak tree's. I love watching which ones start budding early and which ones take a bit longer. Before I got into photography, spring ment winter was finally over. But now, its a new season with new photo ops to do. Each season has its own reasons to love it even more......now.

Do you play in the rain?

I don't play in the rain unfortunately,but I usually walk through it,watch it from inside,or sit outside in the rain and gaze out into the street/forest/other form of landscape.

Does spring inspire you?

Hmm,what a question.Well,I suppose it can at times,but it all depends on what I'm drawing:when I draw flowers or anything botanical,for example,I think of pinks,greens,and other colours often associated with spring to use when colouring them.

I love the rain. I'll going into my woods and sit and hear the raindrops falling from leaf to leaf. If its a light shower then the birds will come out and sing to each other and their songs echo back and forth in the lush greenness. The earth repays the sky for its rain with the musty smell of wet leaves and the freshness of flowers.
I love the nights of storms. I love how the house shakes with every thunder clap and my room fills with a brilliant light from the lightning flashes. The sounds of wind driving the rain into my window lull me to sleep.


(I was just going to put " I love the rain" but it got away from me. Oops.)
