Nature’s Art…

Since my last post, we actually just had another snowfall~~this time with 10 1/2″ of the fluffy white stuff! So………I was forced to slow down once again and just embrace it……..no power for a few days………no machines or computers to do studio work……….no television or radio (well, a bit of music from my smartphone!)……….but it was a gift of time to focus and catch up on other things.

Nature’s Art

 

 

So a couple of new inspirations from nature…

  

 

 

 

and what I call “nature’s art“. 

Winter’s Beauty!

Change Is Not Always a Smooth Transition!

Once again the weather is the inspiration for a post…This year the weather has just been so dramatic around here!

The days became unusually warm a week or so ago, with signs of Spring barely beginning to appear…Change was in the air!

Signs of Spring

There was a struggle between Winter and Spring…

Winter Won!

And this week Winter won!
