Growing up and living in Canada, I quickly learned to appreciate the seasons. In Ontario there are four distinct seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. I love them all. There is something unique and special about each season and each one brings up new emotions.
I have come to realize that what I like best are the seasons themselves. The first snowfall of winter and skating on the lake. The feeling of nature coming back to life in the spring, the sun and deep heat of the summertime, and that brisk air in fall that always feels like a new beginning.
Although it is easy to get caught up in always wanting something else (read: waiting for heat all year long and then complaining about it in the summer). To put it simply, what I enjoy about the seasons is the change.
Some paintings capture the essence of seasons perfectly, and in the midst of a long winter it can bring joy to see a setting that reminds you spring is right around the corner. A painting lets us carry part of the best feeling of each season all year round. What’s your favorite season in art?
