It does look like a fairytale setting; I think you captured the essence of spring. It's a wonderful painting! : )

Hi Rob,
Have just been admiring all your beautiful spring paintings! Way to go, they are so good. I remember one Easter our family spent in Wales in 1990, it was on holiday at St. Brides Castle, it was just as lovely as your paintings in the woods there, I could never believe that Daffodils could grow in such profusion as they did there...i picked dozens of them for the Easter table.What a splendid memory your paintings brought back to me!
not spring yet here, more snow tomorrow predicted...shall hunker down in my studio and paint.
