Winter Is Coming
When I see these winterberries on their leafless branches by the side of the road, I know that winter is just around the corner. They inspired me to put together this still life with a holiday feel, along with some trimmings from a fir tree, a gracefully shaped old pitcher, and a bright red tablecloth. The backlit white curtains add a snowy touch.
I've chosen to have some note cards printed of this piece, and a few others, to add to the offerings at the upcoming show. There will also be giclee prints of "Water Plus Sunshine", "Pizzelle On A Pedestal", "Lilac and Primaries", and "Brussels Sprouts and Delft". I'm looking forward to a very busy and exciting weekend of the 20th through the 22nd!
