Push aside your homework/chores/work reports and come away with me for a bit to a place of peace, where the living are quiet and respectful and the dead…well…they’re quiet too.
In the wintertime, there’s nothing better than a heavy, dark, snow filled sky, where the sky is darker than the ground in the middle of the day (I love when that happens).
If you find yourself far from the woods, with only little time to spare and desperate for some quiet time, I suggest the cemetery. It’s the perfect place to be alone when needed. I think the cemetery is beautiful, especially in winter.
I like the scale in this watercolor.
The cemetery where I did this watercolor (from photo), has many deer which roam around looking for food. You can also spot many different kinds of birds. Every time I’m there, I just happen to hear and see a male cardinal. Maybe it is the same one?
Yesterday’s big snowstorm in Chicago gave me the desire to paint these peaceful winter watercolors, where the snow blankets the ground and all is quiet.
Ok, now back to work….boo. 😦
