ST. AGNES’ Eve…Ah, bitter chill it was!

The owl, for all his feathers, was a-cold;
The hare limp’d trembling through the frozen grass,
And silent was the flock in woolly fold
…extract John Keats

All through this work I was reciting St Agnes Eve in my head..I had to give the painting the same title…it’s bleak, it’s cold, it’s Keats, but it’s also Canada…Toronto, Ontario..

    WELL DONE AND IT BEGINS FOR AN OTHER YEAR,THE SILENCE THAT IS THE NOISE OF WINTER, lIZ

  • Well expressed Liz….sometimes it’s so silent , it’s a roar….we still warmish but so grey…it’s there in the wings just waiting…I thought I had better get on with this years collection of winter paintings while my husband readies the snow blower…
