It's been a long time since I updated my blog. Summer has come and gone and winter is in full swing here in Michigan. It's made an early and vigorous arrival. We've seen snow almost every day and have experienced unusually cold temperatures for November/December.
I lost my muse this past summer. She took a hike but I feel the '*itch' returning at long last. I hope to have some new artwork to offer after the holidays. In the meantime, I saw this scene from my front window today and grabbed my camera to capture it. It was a battle between falling snowflakes, the gathering birds gobbling up berries and the 18° temps to get off a good shot. It's not the best photo but I loved the greys of the sky and the birch tree contrasted against the brilliant orangey red of the berries.
I haven't been entirely reticent in my artistic endeavors for the last several months. Sales at the gallery have been surprisingly good considering the poor economy. I also entered The Artist's Magazine All-Media Online Competition with 'The Cat That Swallowed The Moon'. This will be my first competition so we'll see how well that goes. Winners won't be announced until this coming March.
