Spring Coming by Davis W. Morton

SPRING COMING / 1995 / oil on canvas / 40" x 30"  SOLD... Read a painting comment below...

      Long before there were numbers on the street, Edward Sibley lived on Brink Rd. in Germantown, Maryland. He remembered his uncle leaving the property to go west in a wagon. I kept my horse Cricket on his property for 26 years.
     The first spring after Mr. Sibley died at the age of 96, I was surprised, almost aggravated, when I saw the first flowers coming up. It was as though I expected them to do something different. Although I will always miss the way of life I had on Mr. Sibley’s farm, this painting isn't about death or loss.  It's about the flowers being right.
