Celebration of Spring

I guess the story of spring must well be started with flowers blooming, birds chirping and not to forget the return of swans. Or that is how i imagine it would be, definitely a welcoming sights especially for whom living in harsh winter condition. The hardship is over and it’s time for a new start, kinda like nature reboot it’s self after a full year of toiling. A celebration of life as some would call it.

Also to answer the challenge from fellow blogger (Mr Ryan), have done this painting based on the picture posted at his site http://asmalltowndad.wordpress.com/2010/03/08/springtime-challenge/

Hope you enjoy this painting.
