I sat on a log for a little while
listening too the moans and groans
of the pines swaying in winters wind
shedding the snow from their limbs

and low and behold a vision from the skies
heavenly dusting of powdered snow
falling before my eyes
thanked the trees for such a lovely show

I tried too leave the woods

the trees kept clapping, beckoning me back
I had sat on the best seat , that snow covered log
they wanted to do an encore

I am a self taught artist and have drawn and painted since I could hold crayons or a pencil in my hands..
My brain is an attic filled with treasures yet to be explored or recreated.. I am a Veteran,a wife, a mom, a grandmother, a sister, a daughter and a teacher!!! My pallet is full of life, color and energy.. I hope you will see and feel that in all of my artwork.

    I often hike in the canyons in summer. The best part is just sitting and watching nature. This is a wonderful wintry picture and great words.

  • thanks so much Lori, I agree sometimes we just have to sit and be patient, but it was so cold and I felt like I should keep moving, but happy I sat for just a few, had a room with a view,, peace and love linmarie
