at night


I like this aerial view - looking down at my desk at night. The brass lamp on the right was my great grandfather's - he was a newspaperman and I imagine it has lit up many a night's work.

I'll show you what I've been working on - mixed media and my own poetry:
"Her friend sent thoughts of far away, solitude, peace and all the meadow flowers. They had a glimpse of a certain spring day, seen through windows welled with snow white yearning ."


This was the first of what is becoming a series. I was inspired by the seed catalogs gracing my mail box last week. Simple grace in a homely winter's mailbox.

You're so talented.....I wish I could write poetry. But I'm useless with words.
Love the overhead shot; Kim Klassen uses the technique a lot too. I must try it.....

I love it~ especially because the seed catalogs that came got me so excited for the spring and you took it about ten steps further into art!

Winter night time studio work has a kind of mellow, kind of hibernation, germinating feel to it.
Enjoy your poetry play !
