Colors of Snow

Yesterday, I said I liked the snow, but was ready for some color outside. Today the sun is shining on all the snow. As I look out my window, the shadows that stretch across the landscape appear gray/blue. There are different nuances to the whites, subtle differences in the way the light reflects and bounces off the surface. Mostly blues, but occasionally a slightly pink caste can be seen. The wonder and beauty is that it will shift and change as the day goes on and the sun moves from east to west. Shadows will deepen, colors will shift. Cameras don't always capture the tiny nuances of subtle change, but imagination can.

Today, I will watch the light on the snow and let my imagination go, as I finish other works that have deadlines attached, and finish the paper work. This evening will be time for sketching what I imagined today.

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." - Romans 12:2

  1. I love this piece. I can't wait to see more of the series. I do think that you need to keep going with this idea. Perhaps then go to global warming, with the book of desert pictures I gave you. I have a million ideas for you. I also think that this piece looks very good in the picture, but is so much more in real life. I think that you are a very talented artist with paint or fabric. You are the one person who has supported me in my endeavors as well. Thank you!! As I watch you do well, I know that hard work and love of what you do really does make this happen!! Thanks again for your continued support and I will always be there to give you my expert artist's opinion!! We both know that I inherited it from you!
