Fresh Art That’s a Celebration of Spring

Embrace Creatives has gathered bunches of bright artwork bursting to bring Spring into your home.

Here at the Embrace Creatives, metro Detroit headquarters, we’re gearing up for Spring!  This year the spring equinox comes to us on Saturday, March 20 as the astronomical first day of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

Why do we feel so happy when Spring arrives? Well, our senses are dramatically affected by the awakening of spring and our brains naturally produce more dopamine during this time of year – the hormone triggered by new experiences. Experiences like the warmth of the sun, new bright, outdoor colors and the sound of birds all give us a dopamine hit, making us more susceptible to love and good feelings, and increases our creativity. As an art showroom, we’re ALL about increasing creativity!

Hey, have you heard the old tale that on the day of the spring equinox you can balance an egg in an upright position? Sadly that’s not true but you CAN use fresh, earthy artwork to balance your home or office and celebrate the coming of Spring!  Below, I’ve showcased a few warm, happy and blooming art options to bring a smile to your face and space.

“Spring fever” seems to be an actual phenomenon, and one way people indulge in it is through a more active lifestyle, according to experts at the University of North Carolina. Exercise can lead to a boost in endorphins – the same feel-good chemical that may come from warmer weather.
