On parachutes of crystal snowflakes
The Winter flew from sky to earth.
And if life has turned the other way,
If life has gone the other way,
Don’t ask and search your inner fault,
Don’t ask and search your inner fault
.

The trees were shaking branches slightly
In frosty and fantastic haze.
And if we all the way were silent
If we all the way were silent,
Then had we anything to say?
But had we anything to say
?

Among the snowpiles sank the town,
The snowdrift was trimming lace,
And if I loved, alas, the other,
If I loved, alas, the other one,
Then Love chose everything itself.
The Love chose everything itself
.

On parachutes of crystal snowflakes
The Winter flew from sky to earth.
And if life had turned the other way,
If life had gone the other way,
‘Twas my decision, and not your’s,
‘Twas my decision, but not your’s
. Song by V.Dmitriev..translated from Russian..Lyudmila Purgina

For many winter is a very stressful time…a time of partings…best be gone and don’t ask the poet says…best move on…Watercolour on Arches Not Paper

I paint in many different styles and feature a myriad of subject matter, which I show as individual collections….
I am inspired by the world interpreting it in brilliant colours, often influenced by the writings of famous authors and poets..

    Love how the falling snow looks like light – like the light beyond in the awaited destination – the place to move on.

  • That’s exactly it…where you move to does not show, but it’s there all the same…thanks so much MuiLing..
