Imagine. Warmer Weather.

Let Me Out

It is the end of January, almost February, and another snowstorm.  I am sick of snow, even though I don’t think the snow has really been THAT bad this year, at least not yet.  I think it is the accumulation of last year’s snow plus this year’s snow that is making it seem unbearable.  Though I just heard a rumor that we may be getting the snowstorm of the century this week.  Really?

Where has summer gone?  It seems so long ago.

This blog entry features work that makes me think of warmer weather and its light and color.  Blue – the blue of a clear summer sky and of the local chlorinated public pool.  Yellow – the hot yellow of the sun and of one of spring’s first perennials, daffodils.  And green – the green of a thick canopy of leaves and of soft grass under bare feet.

It is the middle of winter:  the trees are bare. The ground – raw umber and covered with gray snow.  The only real color appears briefly in the sky at sunset.  But still, this morning, I woke up to the sound of birds singing – a sound I associate with spring.  I imagined opening a window to feel Spring’s just-a-tease-of -coming-warmth breeze.  The days are starting to get longer, the morning birds are singing.  Believe it or not, spring is on its way.  Here are some wonderful images to spark your imagination and feed your hibernating soul.

    I wish I could surround myself with this work – the colors are definitely mood elevating. Nina’s picture of the open window says it all. I can’t wait for the first open window day!
