Monday Randoms

I’m taking a walk every day despite the gloomy weather. I wonder how the clothespin got there?

Painting Winter: Background Progress

Here’s today’s winter birch forest painting status!
This morning I glued a first layer of birch trees onto the background, along with a few leaves and yellow grass. The trees were too pale, so I had to add an extra layer of dark gray. Now I will work on adding some texture to the snow on the floor before gluing the foreground trees.

What is keeping you busy today ?

In The Autumn Forest

It’s been rainy lately and now mushrooms are popping up everywhere.

As I explored and took pictures, the wind made a nice rustling sound in the trees above my head.

It really really looked like a fairy tale forest.

wild geese

The snow and ice are gone, and I went for a ride. Raced through the forest, stopped to listen to the silence. Heard birds. Smelled newly cut trees. Heard water running. Smelled moss and wet earth. Saw wild geese in the fields. Felt sun and wind on my skin. It felt good.

Winter Woods Photo || bymarion

Remember that piece? Well, I actually found that place yesterday! Some days it feels like art imitates life, some days it feels like life imitates art. Either way, this is my happy place.
