Spring Flowers - "Wishing for Spring" by Trien



Picture taken outside today. Yup, still lots of snow on the ground here, even though we're well into spring in the calendar.
Flowers folded from a pattern mom taught me waaaaaaaaay back, in grade 4, I think?
Camera: DMC-LF1

Spring Art Contest - Spring Freestyle: Avatar&Signature Set - "The Tree that represents Life..." by Seraph

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since i last participated in an Art Contest but with this Spring Themed Contest i couldn't resist,i saw the announcement for the Contest and immediatly knew what i want to submit for this Contest. When i think about Spring there always comes one picture to mind for me and that's the Cherry Blossom Trees that begin to bloom around Mid-April towards the begin of May most of the times. I always liked the sight of those and felt somehow like every worry and problem had been taken of my shoulders,it is a really relaxing sight to behold.

Cherry Blossoms also have a significant part within Japan's Culture,for hundreds of years infact, in their country the Tree represents the fragility and the beauty of Life. They are reminders that Life can be so incredibly beautiful but also rather short. Tragically. This belief stems from the Trees own short lifespan(They live for 30-40 years),their beautiful but also very short blooming periods(They bloom twice a year,firstly between April and May and the next time between October to January which is caused by the sometimes unusual weather patterns of the fall/winter season.)And of course their beautiful appearance.

First of all, the Original Pictures for both Avatar and Signature.

I used Photoscape for both pictures to add visual effects,resize the pictures and add a frame for each picture.

MangaHelpers Spring Art Contest - Spring Freestyle: "Flower wall" by revo


A quick photo I took when I was taking a walk in the middle of Spring, a house had an outside wall full of flowers and took a pic of it as soon as I could, not the best thing ever but I loved the color of them. :hbunny

Spring Freestyle Art Contest - "Here Comes the Sun (Kalimba Cover)" by Organizized


Besides being one of those immortal spring songs, this is also a song of hope, which is something I think we all need right now.

Song written by George Harrison (recorded by The Beatles).
Arranged for kalimba, performed and recorded by me.

(I'm not happy that it's filmed vertically, but I only had a few minutes and couldn't set it up better..)
