Tuesday and thus time for two of my favorite virtual weekly blogging challenges by Leslie and Kathy. Each week both come up with a prompt for our blogging communities, one more aimed at writing, the other more at photography. A lot of times I can nicely combine both prompts, and I will do it again this week.

  1. Leslie’s prompt today: I am so done with Winter… .show me your Spring!  
  2. Kathy’s suggestion for Song-ography is “American Pie” by Don McLean

Doesn’t sound combinable?! Watch me:

“But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn’t take one more step”

Granted I am barely scratching the surface of this American classic and I actually also had a pie photo lined up, but when I saw it next to this photo? Nope, that was a no go. So, sorry, Leslie, but not really spring here yet either. What better excuse than to create our own spring with our art?

This is actually a variation of a photo I did early in 2013 as a simple composite. A spring photo, plus snow effect. That was it back in 2013. Fast forward two years and I have added more elements, paper, flowers, bird and script overlays, all part of my evolution as an artist.

There is no right or wrong. There is art.

spring, snow, grunge, fine art

Hmm, why don’t I show you the 2013 version, too? Here you go. A lot cleaner, less messy, more real, more photographic. Which ever one you prefer, I created them both and I like them both.

spring, flurries, snow, willow
