Watercolor on Indian Village, 5"x 7"
matted and backed to 8"x 10"
I have so enjoyed seeing everyone's winter paintings and photos. Some are simply exquisite. I can't say that I've traveled far and wide in the blogosphere but loved Sarah Wimperis' Swans in Snow, Mineke Reinder's Winter Sketches and seeing Joshemari's neighborhood blanketed in rare snow. It's a snowy world.
I worked on this as long as I could last night and then let it sit overnight. I hate to sound like a broken record (do people know what that means anymore?) but, while I could do more with it, I am letting it be it's wan self.
After arriving at a title for this, I see there's a Swedish band by the name. At this time of year in Sweden, they know the meaning of the phrase. These days where I am, it's the only light available.
As I write this, I am watching the snow fall, drinking white tea with honeysuckle in the kitchen. The local schools were closed for snow the past two days - and good thing because the roads were hazardous. But today, Saturday, is the first true snow day. It's good fun to ease into the day gently and keep life in the kitchen for a while before venturing out.
Well, I think I'll make some oatmeal!
