There is a peace that permeates one’s being while walking through a garden after a new fallen snow.
But along with that peace comes a feeling of sadness as the realization of knowing another season comes to an end.
Endings may be not be what they appear
Look into hidden corners of the garden and see what emerges from the snow cover ground
Allow your eyes to be drawn to vibrant colors in an otherwise neutral landscape
Rejoice in knowing this is not an end, only life passing through celestial cycles
One quiet winter afternoon I was looking for one more thing to do as the ice and snow had continued to hold me captive inside.
I had never googled my blog so I thought this might be an interesting activity. Photos I had posted during the last three years filled the screen. Then a painting appeared. I thought I recognized it. Intrigued I clicked on the photo and discovered a post dated April 16, 2012 by Maria Zarif. I was so honored that someone had chosen a photograph I had taken to use as a catalyst for her inspiration!
I share that photo, a link to her post and her painting.
And then I had an idea. I want to ask friends, artists and all onlookers who stop by this blog to take a moment from their busy schedule to choose a photo and create! Have fun, don’t get bogged down in the details, just create! I would like to ask you to please stop back and share your creation!
I might even give it a go!
As a post script watercolors I had created more than 3 decades ago I honored by taking photos of in their new incarnation. As I shared earlier don’t worry about the details
