Skunk Cabbage - Sweet as Spring

My first trip into the woods after snowmelt this Spring was at that moment when only the Skunk Cabbage had pushed its way toward the light. No other spring wildflowers had yet emerged. Unable to contain my zeal for the season I took an image of a small patch of Skunk cabbage and turned it into an image I've titled "Spring's First Bloom" and a second, monochrome print "Springs Dance of Form". Here are the two images from that effort.

Springs First Bloom

Spring's First Bloom:
Skunk Cabbage is the first plant that pokes through the ground in New England. This image is a treatment of Skunk Cabbage as a blossom of spring. This image is a hand colored monochrome image.
