Emerging Crocus Sketch

Crocuses watercolor and micron pen

Just as a ballerina twirls, the tender crocus unfurls as it emerges from the ground.

That’s what I thought of as I gazed upon the much awaited, first flower of the year. Its struggle to break through the soil, I guess just makes it stonger…and in such cold weather too!

We all must struggle and grow before we bloom. The hardest part is trying to remember that. Bitter-sweet joy.

  1. Lovely painting. It’s true, growth and beauty take hard work and struggle. But, the blooms that come as a result are such a gift.
