What is more wonderful then a somersault on new spring grass? This is what my two years old grandson must have thought, when a cold winter, he saw the soft green lawn. I captured the moment with my fabrics and paints : his somersault surpresed the frog who stopped in the shallow water, the bee who flew low over the water making concentric rings on its surface, and the grasshopper who stopped to let him pass. His innocence and his play fullness bring a breath of fresh spring air to all of us.
