A couple of years ago my good friend Joyce was walking through the site she stewards, Grant Woods. It was December, and the first snow was just starting to fall. The sky had gone dark and still, the woods were hushed, then suddenly big fat snowflakes began to fall. Luckily she had her camera with her and captured the magical moment. She had me paint a triptych of it, with the center image the widest. It was a pretty cool project. When I had the trees painted the way we wanted them I had her come to my studio and we spattered on the snow together. That is a fun memory. She just had a second hip surgery, and I’m hoping that will enable her to be back on the trail by spring.
The darned editor would not let me show the image on the right in full, so I added it below so you can see all of it.
Currently we have a few inches of snow from a few weeks ago that have condensed down to ice…I’m ordering some spikes for all of our shoes so we can go outside safely. Pete’s feet come with spikes! 🙂
He loves the snow, crazy as THAT seems…
