    Smile Merry Springmas ~ ~ ~

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Did someone say that Spring has finally sprung because I
    concluded that winter here would never end. Someone once
    said that I tend to paint what I feel and boy have I been
    feeling awfully cold for aaaaawfully long so I thought it might
    be appropriate to post some frosty impressions before the
    Crocuses start to bloom. ( If ever!) Otherwise I will have to
    save the below entries until next winter and by that time I
    might be snowed under and spending my free time on rustling
    up Gopher stew ...a cold weather staple for we rural people.


    The inspiration for the below painting came from a frost incrusted
    window. It is titled, "Frosted Window Pane."

    Below are two photos that I thought you might enjoy. The first is
    titled, "Flash Frozen" and the second, "Illuminated Blizzard."

    A raging snow storm rolled in one night and out I went with camera.
    I noticed how the glow of the street light was almost obliterated
    with wind swept snow ... took the picture then ran back into house
    as fast as my fast freezing legs could carry me before I too was
    swept away by the Arctic blast from Hell. What fun!!!

    I was watching a picture post card snowfall from my window one
    evening and thought about how each snowflake is reported to be
    different and unique. This painting is the result of my love and
    enjoyment of this most decorative season. It is titled, "Celebrate
    the Differences."

    A few more winterized photos that I thought I'd post before
    they begin to thaw out due to the fact I think it's April now.

    1) "Reflections in Blue."
    2) "March Regalia."
    3) "Winter Wonderland and ....
    4) "Solitude."

    The below painting was conceived by a combination of inspirations
    and of course ... my hobby, seasonal celestial meanderings, titled,
    "Moonglow."

    Hi gzairborne,
    I must have a genetic predisposition to the Alaskan tundra because I
    really love winter. (as well as the other three seasons!) It breaks up the
    monotony of a perpetual three hundred and sixty five day oneness.

    What a gracious response, g.z., a sincere thank you!

    Its so good to see your wonderful photos Mairzie they have really been missed. You are an artist with the camera as well as the brush. I love your painting called Moonglow. Its as if the moon goddess is floating through the air and we are gazing through her hair of spun gold looking at the moon. Beautiful thread.
