Woke up this morning to swirling wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour and 2 feet of snow.
Photo captured in Sugar Grove, Illinois.

Long an avid admirer of artistic beauty, I have only recently embarked on the process of creating art. It is a passion, indeed, and one that provides nourishment for the soul.
Thank you very much for the visit, and I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I have enjoyed the creative process.
It was quite a frigid morning. Thanks, Christine!
