It’s coincidental – really it is. That I have been painting with white paint today. Well, yesterday, today – and probably tomorrow too. I’ll show you why I think it’s coincidental.
This is the front. I’m trying to talk myself into adding color to it.
And this is the back. Same goes for the back. After all they go together – front and back.
I took the following photo to see if I could capture more of the dimension of the various elements I have added. Part of the pleasure is trying new things, new techniques. This was fun once I got my courage up.
Now for the coincidental part. I think I will start by quoting an essay I read recently in one of my favorite magazines (Our State). Susan Kelly writes “Here in North Carolina we’re allowed to love snow, because it’s a fleeting, temporary gift . . .”
So knowing that the snow we got would disappear almost as quickly as it arrived, I took a few blurry photos in the dark of our front yard
And our back deck.
It was kind of thrilling watching it come down. Mostly because some of us like to hope we will get to enjoy the beauty and quiet of a new fallen snow. We’d like to see it at least cover the blades of grass completely. Ah, well, maybe next time.
