in frozen rain.
Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.
Frank Lloyd Wright
This image just reinforces for me why I love winter so much.
I was awakened by the sound of wet snow sliding off of my metal roof; the snow having turned to rain sometime during the night.
I treat almost every surface as a canvas and on this morning my eyes were drawn to the image of a forest, etched in frozen rain, on the plastic side window of my Wrangler.
It was reminiscent of the trees that my father would carve with a palette knife into his acrylic paintings. Many years after his passing I still use that palette knife to carve into my encaustic paintings of photographic images.
Stay close to nature, it will never fail you.
