Artist's Description

“A driving snow-storm in the night and still raging; five or six inches deep on a level at 7 A.M. All birds are turned into snowbirds. Trees and houses have put on the aspect of winter. The traveller’s carriage wheels, the farmer’s wagon, are converted into white disks of snow through which the spokes hardly appear.
But it is good now to stay in the house and read and write. We do not now go wandering all abroad and dissipated, but the imprisoning storm condenses our thoughts. I can hear the clock tick as not in pleasant weather. My life is enriched. I love to hear the wind howl. I have a fancy for sitting with my book or paper in some mean and apparently unfavourable place, in the kitchen, for instance, where the work is going on, rather a little cold than comfortable
― Henry David Thoreau, The Journal, 1837-1861

“There is, of course, always the personal satisfaction of writing down one’s own experiences so they may be saved, caught and pinned under glass, hoarded against the winter of forgetfulness.
Time has been cheated a little, at least, in one’s own life, and a personal, trivial immortality of an old self assured
― Anne Morrow Lindbergh, North to the Orient

A painter can do more than write, we can paint our thoughts, ideas and memories…Abstract Journal page in Watercolour on Arches Not Paper…best viewed large…
