When I was a kid, I thought there was something a bit melancholy about those blue shadows on the snow contrasted with the bright blue sky. I still feel that way, it turns out. Your painting reminded me.
Hi PD,Do you enjoy melancholy? I agree with you, there is indeed something melancholy about winter afternoon light and shadow... I find I enjoy it. It's a kind of waiting, of the emptiness of things "on pause", a space free of expectation. In this way, melancholy is similar to disappointment:http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/index.php?date=2003/11/09
Haha...I just think...ooohh, how could anyone stand outside in the cold and paint? No matter how beautiful the scenery. You may have figured out that I am not a cold weather gal... :o)
Hi Blue, Well... it was above zero so not that cold! Oh those Canadians eh *laughs*
Love these, and the Canadian truth. It was above zero here for a day or two too, and people were out in sleeveless T-shirts and shorts. It felt so strange to have to take layers off. However, we're back in the deep freeze, by now familiar territory.XOXOXO Barbara
Thanks Barbara! Today here is "warm" too, but tomorrow will be getting colder again... I enjoy both, as long as I'm dressed for it!Just read your happiness blog, love it!:)V
