I was battling the cold whilst creating this page. Usually when it’s cold in my basement art space, I tend to go for warm colors. This was not the case. I was embracing the cold with lovely cool tone colors and texture like snow.
I felt the colors around the edge resembled a cold winter night with the moonlight reflecting off the snow. I’ve always wished I was a landscape painter…which I am certainly not…but I do give it a whirl from time to time.
I left a light space in the middle and pictured a grove of evergreen trees at the edge of a lake. The boughs heavy with new snow.
My vision didn’t quite come to fruition but it’s not as bad as it could have gone. (glass half full)
The words weren’t what had originally thought I’d use. I had words of silence and peace…the sweet silence of freshly fallen snow. If you’ve ever experienced it, you know what I’m talking about.
This thought made me feel joyful! It’s always good to celebrate even the most simple things in life. Fresh snow, a creative muse, birds in the trees, bunny tracks through the snow…
