Some winters are more brutal than others – it seems as if the snow will never melt, never go away. It just hangs on and on, a little dirtier and icier, but determined to stay.
But . . . the decision to stay is not the snow’s, nor winter’s – because every single year, spring arrives with its sunshine and its warmth and it promise of new growth. Joyously, happily, colorfully, spring dances into the landscape, liberally sprinkling the trees with blossoms, the meadows with wildflowers, the sky with soft white clouds.
Spring in the Wallowas, the artwork, celebrates just such a time and a season. High in the mountains of east central Oregon, USA, the landscape retains a sense of winter’s coolness, and in the background you can see the mountains, still covered with snow.
But in the foreground, the grass is green, the trees are budding, and bushes explode in a profusion of colorful blossoms.
“Spring! Spring! Spring is here!” the landscape not only sings but shouts, and we join in – glad to see the snow melting, overjoyed at the incredible lush greenery, content to bask in the warm sunshine, which is lightly touched by a bracing breeze.
Just when we thought it would never be warm, ever again . . .
Because representational art celebrates life, we can see – in this landscape of spring with all its hope and joy – a connection beyond just the seasons. In the same way that we live through periods of cold and grief, of greyness and a winter that seems to hang on and on, so also will we enter into a spring, a time of new growth, new hope, new beginnings – no matter how old we are, because spring does not limit itself to only youth.
Just when we thought we would never smile, never laugh, ever again . . .
