Spring Peach Blossom - Maree Clarkson

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.

~Rainer Maria Rilke

A daily practice of sketching and painting gives you a chance to exercise the big three P's - practice, practice, practice!

Even though we seem to be well into Summer, Spring is still the theme here in South Africa - we won't let go of it that easy! I sketched some peach blossoms while the trees were still covered in them, now the fruits have already appeared.


  1. It's beautiful Maree. Seems odd for us 'northerns' to see you talking about spring in this interesting world of ours.

  2. Love the quote and the beautiful sketch, Maree...

  3. Thanks Teri and Pam - It certainly makes for diversity now, doesn't it? Spring blossoms mixed with autumn leaves...

  4. Lovely, Maree! Thanks for mixing Kate & Me up! I'd love to paint like Kate :)

  5. Oh noooooo Pam! You must have been talking about me! Thank you Kate and Sorry Kate, and I would LOVE to paint like Kate as well, Pam! Have I got it all the names right now....?
