This is my 300th post! Yeah! Do I sound like I’m breaking my arm patting myself on the back? I’m really pleased and happy that I have made so many new friends and learned so much during the last two years of blogging. Thank you….

We have been having a warm and wet winter in Indiana. Snow is due today along with colder weather. I have been thinking about the flow of seasons and about winter. In the mid-1980’s I painted one of my best paintings ever. I copied a photo of a lynx in deep snow and was so proud of the beautiful pink, lavender and cerulean blue highlights I achieved. They brought the snow to life. I decided to try to capture some of this winter beauty with my current abstract painting style. This was a challenge and working with white watercolor is a difficult. It looks so flat! But I learned alot and tried something new and so all’s well that ends well.

Flow of Nature - Winter

I did like the sense of snow being blown by the wind in this abstract world. Feels very cold.

    This is what today feels like with the cold wind blowing and the snow in the air. Brrrr. I bet it is colder up by you than down here.

    Cold, frigid, moving and still the light is there! I think youdid great with the white! Love that burst of it in the middle!

    You captured it. I think you have opened the door to your spirit…. far more abstract than representational. Perhaps skills may be honed by representational exercises. In your case, your spirit flies with the abstract ….. in my opinion.
