Oh how I love a winter storm at night! To hear the hollowing wind and watch the flurries take a horizontal path…brings much joy.
Today it rained for the majority of the day. I woke up to rain banging at my window. On my way home from work, it changed into freezing rain and by evening snow! This storm wasn’t big and didn’t last for a long time, but at one point this is what I saw:
The wind picked up and let out a big “shhhhhhh“. Snow flew from left to right in a straight direction. Branches bend with the wind and snow collected on the north side of the trunk and twigs.
A nightly storm can bring peace and humility. How fragile we are compared to the forces of nature. I think of all of the caterpillars that are in an anti-freeze state of hibernation. Some might be under that bark right now? I couldn’t do that. I wouldn’t make it a few hours unprotected. That humbles me.
Today’s sketchbook page was done with Derwent’s Inktense Watersoluble Ink Pencils and a Micron pen.
