Bristol Bridge and Spring Blossom.

Bristol Bridge and Spring Blossom.
24cm x 18cm. 9.5 in x 7in.
Oil gesso board.

Good morning! It is a truly beautiful day here, sun, birdsong and the fresh new green of a fine spring day.
I have just finished this painting and I love it. The bridge in the background is Bristol Bridge; it was an unusually hot day for April. The sunlight was glancing off the new leaves and blossoms that covered the trees making everything shimmer, the new leaves, the light, the shadows on the grass and the paths, the buildings and the river all shattering into colours and shapes. Springtime in England, after all that rain and gloom maybe makes it all the more glorious.

60 pounds (UK) 116 dollars (USA) and 85 euros (Europe). This includes the postage.

it's lovely and really catches the essence of spring and it's special light and vibrant fresh growth :>)

I can only echo Viv - this is lovely Sarah. You've really caught the spring we're getting this year.
