In this beautiful oil on canvas, Leo Dorn has conjured the beauty and warmth of a spring day. The vivid dabs of paint evokes the brightness of the season whilst the thick impasto recreate the lush vegetation and titular spring bouquet. There is a clear interest in light in this painting: the short, sharp brushstrokes reminds the viewer of the haze of heat and the artist has captured the light as it falls on the porch, the shadow visible on the lower right foreground. Using these Impressionist techniques, Dorn has transported the viewer to a beautiful spring garden, resplendent in the bright sunshine.
