Winter - 12-29-15

It has finally arrived. Beautiful and pristine, it is coating the birdhouse and the branches and stems of what’s left of our prairie. The snow-covered pastureland across the river in Iowa is black and white resembling an Ansel Adams photograph. It would be a good day to build a snowman if one were so inclined. Instead, I’m cozy and warm working in my metals studio. I’m more than happy to appreciate the view from this side of the windowpane!
