May is my favourite month. It’s just beautiful. It looks nice, smells nice, sounds nice! Bird song and cherry blossom, bluebells and cow parsley. These two paintings are celebrations of May, spring has finally well and truly sprung. Who could be sad walking into summer?
At the beginning of the month the lanes around here were adrift with cherry blossom. It was raining the day I painted Stony Lane, I loved the contrast between the wet and shiny road, and the pink heaps of blossom.
