Deep Winter

The season of harsh winds, cold fingers, red cheeks. Winter like I remember in the Shenandoah Valley. Where warmth was found in friends' homes, in the cafes, the library stacks.

Walking through ice covered snow, the crunch of each footstep.  Looking up into the snowing sky, seeing only black and white of sky and flakes as they fell.

Keep your heart warm.

Gather together

Welcome to the Summer Solstice collection.  A selection of work that is born from the heat.

A celebration of  the sticky arms of watermelon eating, ice cold drinks and glowing humidity. 

The longest day of the year

 

The flicker of fireflies

(green cocoon)

 

The buzz of cicadas. 

 

The grumbling thunder storms.

 

The beads of sweat, dripping down your chest as you lay still on the hammock.
