She told me she'd love me in the winter by Nicole McBride

Currently unavailable for purchase

She told me she'd love me in the winter by 

Mixed media painting on canvas 40 cm x 90cm

She told me she’d love me in the winter.
When the first of the blossoms
fall silently to earth,
candy pink icing on a frosting of snow.
Your love would bloom
when little else does,
emerging from the mist
encrusted with frost,
shimmering diamonds
that bedazzle the hills.
I will wait,
hating the summer,
for you Ice Queen
maiden of the antarctic
to turn your icy stare my way.
I will melt
you will thaw,
warmed by the eternal spring
that follows me,
faithful creature of light.
We two are seasons
swirling in unison,
cherry blossoms riding the breeze,
falling to earth
and knowing
we are a single verse
in an endless song.

    definitely a story to be told here…love the colours and soft edges, dragonflies and flowers. Beautiful painting.

  • thank you Lisa, its funny sometimes the story comes first, sometimes the painting, I am not sure who’s stories they are, they just seem to come like I know them by heart.
