Heavy Frost.. recording seasonal changes

Heavy Frost   watercolor   3.5 x 17
marks a passage for those of us who live in a geographical area marked by seasonal changes.  Rhythms change and, along with them, changes in what we wear, what we eat and how we spend our time.  This very small watercolor records that change from my view of our back yard where I drink my morning java.  Endings.  Beginnings.  Preparations for the December holidays....plans to spend precious time with family members who visit from afar; lots of baking; lots of plans; and the bringing in of greens to satisfy our needs for it when the environment is lain dormant for a while.  Small painting.  Big idea.
