Artist's Description

*The fortress is quiet
It’s knights have gone home
There’s no longer the riot
Of laughter that roamed

Snow has hidden the traces
Of knights with no fear
Their joyous young faces
And occasional tear

Chased off by the sun
and it’s warm golden rays
Cold snow will be shunned
From hastening knight’s play

Then return of the knights
To reclaim their old fort
Under skies warm and bright
With parental escort*

This digital painting was created from a photo I shot early one morning while the snow was falling. I tried to capture the quiet and stillness of this playground that is in a small rural town in the Pacific Northwest. It was such a contrast to the usual activity in the playground, as the town’s elementary school has no playground of it’s own, and the teacher’s will often bring their students from the school across the street to play here.
