I realized the other day that after Christmas and New Year's, there is really nothing to look forward to in winter besides the coming of spring. Normally, I grit my teeth and wait impatiently for green leaves. This year, however, I will at least attempt to embrace the wintery portion of the year! And so I find myself making art to celebrate the icy, lacy frostiness of the season.
This is the image that has been floating around in my head; nothing particularly fancy or complicated, just the starkness of the landscape accented by one bright red bird. The frosty white lace, besides satisfying my latest obsession, brings the wonderful quality of snow dusted tree branches to the picture. That has always been one of my favorite sights in the calm after a snowstorm, every tree dressed in white.
Well, I hope we make it through the winter! If a print would help make it bearable, find one in my Etsy store. Stay warm!
