iphone camera on my walk

 so there's some (more) snow
 and this lovely light was frigid last evening.
almost as cold right now
 it was too cold to walk
my nose hurt
 but it was beautiful
with light strong, intense
 and secret hidey holes and shadows
 frost heave causes many scares
while driving the back roads.
this morning the snow was squeeky 
and i knew we were below zero.
 some treasures i picked up
at the grampians texture
waiting for experimental stitches
of some sort.
 the leavings from some 
frozen blueberries
patterning the inside of
a yogurt container.
some drawing experiments
under ecoprinting
and today, after,
well i'll let you know what i think 
once they're all dry.

Its amazing, huh, how many squeaky snow days there have been! Roads are horrific, our state doesn't seem to put up signs, though, would be a good idea!!

aimee and valerie, i'm enjoying the backhomeness but not the cold. when spring moves in i will be happy, but even i see this lovely snow as a blessing. remember: poor man's fertilizer!

Tree shadows on bright snow. Breathtaking! Sitting in mild and mellow South Africa with out sleeves, I can wish for snow but I know I wouldn't be happy driving through it to work every day.

jean, wet, without freezing sounds good!
robyn, subaru + snow tires = safe!

I love the crispness of the bright blue skies and the snow - it feels positive and maybe signals Spring? Even if it is oh so cold still…sending Spring-like thoughts your way
