Spring as a season and the word "Primavera"have always made love come to mind, immediately. Given the prompt at I.A. (with the lovely words written about the theme, especially alongside the flirty and sensual pictures), the theme of "Primavera" in my submission has much do with love and attraction. I just finished a piece for a gallery show on these very themes. The one difference is that it's not about human love.
To be more specific, the guidelines for the show were to focus on love, reproduction, springtime, and how this relates to animals. We were allowed to go the cute or the obscene route, so I chose the cute/implied route. The koalas are simply spooning, and the border of cartoony koalas (inspired by my toy Koala who I speak of often, Fuzzles Koala), shows more koalas juggling hearts and literal spoons. Oh, punniness. I can never stop.
Incidentally, I thought "Marsupispoons" was a cute and obvious title name, and then someone close to me said it would have been a bit of an easier pun to understand had I called it "Marspoonials." A brief poll I've taken suggests that my title is more difficult to understand, and that "Marspoonials" is clearer. Boo! But not really, as methinks people will understand well enough, and either way, I believe that cudding Koalas can warm the heart, no matter what you title them.
In any event, to see information on the gallery holding said animal show, please go to:
