Little glimpses of the softening landscape and the play of light and shadow by roadsides. Spring has been set in glorious motion and there was a collective sigh of relief from the landscape and its inhabitants.

Beautiful, Karen. I’m there.
Thank you Brenda. I’m happy to have you along. xx
These are really lovely. The colors are at once soft and vibrant. Is that even possible?
More beautiful abstracts!
Such relaxing sighs of beauty.
Warm spring breezes waking sleepy limbs and reeds.
These are awesome! I especially like the 4th one.
I’m so glad your spring has arrived at last Karen. It’s been a long winter. These are very beautiful as always!
Wonderful work! Love the movement in these!
Such gorgeousness, Karen, I had to make up a word 🙂
The artistry in Motion , Perfected.
Beautiful compositions Karen, they are wonderful compositions and are so perfect that I don’t think in your technic but just I feel the graceful movement in my mind, a way of not just paint with light but make it dance.
Nice. And so good together.
beautiful gentleness, feels wonderful ethereal.
breathtaking, specially 4 and 1, really masterful
Those images are cutting, opening out from what they transpire within me: a swath of desire to emerge into their worlds and become succumbed into the mess they magnetize.
Bravo! Beautiful series!
Amazing and beautiful!
I found this extremely inspirational. I love how the theme carried through, while each photo remained unique.
Magnificent series. Would look great displayed all together. The movement is mesmerizing.
Beautiful fresh and vital!

At last! These are lovely, Karen – as if they’re springing to life themselves.
The colours and textures of bygone times.
Great shots! This brings me high.
Unbelievable. Unbelievable and evidence at the same time. Beautiful.
Each time you’re pressing something new into this..it’s exciting. Some of these remind me a little of a Piet Oudolf garden..
Karen blur always works for me.. sorry I have been so absent Karen.. life has got in the way.. big time!
