Spring Is Coming!

The cloudy skies, freezing rain, and drizzling snow have worked a number in my palette! In order to compensate for the doldrums…I have gone bright…bright pink, bright yellow, aqua…desperate for sunny skies and chirping birds I looked to introduce such pure pigments!

Keeping with my current fascination with small scale and housed in a distressed frame, these 5″ x 7″ paintings will, I hope, brighten your day!.


  1. That is a beautiful picture. I love seeing your creative ideas!

  2. Those turned out gorgeous! And I love the frames.


  3. BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the textures of your paintings… something you have inspired me to try



  4. HI! Thanks for saying hi! glad to meet you!

  5. Kijsa, I love your colors… I love everything you do. Hope the snow passes and brings those beautiful colors to our yards soon.

  6. Just popping in to say hello. I love the paintings, very spring indeed! Brightens my day! I also love, love, love the orchid in the post below. Very serene and lovely.

  7. Kisja ~ I have to admit, every time you post a new painting, I want to say, “This is my favorite!!”

    I love the color in these two. Very beautiful.

  8. I love how you introduced the turq.auqa color. I remember when I first learned how that color can make a picture come alive! Its beautiful.

  9. This is really pretty. I love the colors.The frame goes really well too and makes it very interesting to look at.

  10. Just beautiful Kijsa.

  11. Beautiful Kijsa, what more inspiration than Spring, the new colours of the new life, just lovely! Jenn and Jacqui xo

  12. I like the bright colors!! I know in real life they are probably even more vibrant and beautiful! I’m beginning to really love red and turquoise together… it was the rival high school’s colors years ago, but now I really like it! 🙂 Funny how silly associations keep a person from appreciating colors fully!!

  13. Very nice! It’s also a wonderful analogy…tough times urge us to create and creating is always a wonderful.

  14. very pretty! love the crackle!
