Landscapes, Seascapes, and Story Scenes

I remember my childhood names for grasses and secret flowers. I remember where a toad may live and what time the birds awaken in the summer -- and what trees and seasons smelled like -- how people looked and walked and smelled even.
~John Steinbeck

Beautiful, soft scenes. Very soothing this morning.

Bottom and Titania is especially interesting.

Tabatha, I just love this collection of paintings. Pioneer of Aerial Navigation is a beauty, especially since I love country scenes from long ago. Do you think I can add this to the spring gallery, compliments of you?
