"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." - Anne Bradstreet

I LOVE this winter season...I am still hoping for a enough snow to get my ski's and snowshoes out for some adventure!  It is also this wonderful winter season that is so quiet here that I can really immerse myself in my painting.  Very few outside distractions make for some great moments in the studio as well as some exploration and experimentation.  
Art can never be comfortable.  As I am working, I find so much angst, so much confusion, so much of the un-known...as I layer oils and pigments on top of each other, unearthing layers underneath...and somehow, most of the time, it finally speaks to me...finally is finished.  This may take weeks; this may take months.  But it truly is this PROCESS that I LOVE!
So, as we celebrate this Winter Solstice, may we enjoy the quiet time and the beauty of the winter season! Enjoy this winter day!
                                                 time well spent....this winter solstice day!
