Some Things are Seen More Clearly in Winter - Danseuse oil/canvas 48 x 24 x 1.5
I am a lover of winter....the snow, the cold and the isolation. For me, it is my most painting-productive time of year as well as a respite from feverish activity. This season promotes introspection and the observance of quiet living. OK. Well. Don't ever say it in public, as the vast majority of people seem to prefer other seasons, any other season...summer most often. It is true that my job does not require me to leave home, so driving and perpetual bundling are not issues. For me, things are more clearly seen in winter....the visual delights as well as the emotional dilemmas. Bare Bones. Less competition. Definitely less noise. The cardinal takes on more importance in the background of winter. Love it. Love it. Love it.
