My mind is in spring already. So I am letting go of the season with a few paintings that depict the wonder and beauty of winter.
I am not a big appreciator of winter, and ours ends up being too long every year, so this activity is a bit balancing to me. I am saying thanks to all the good impulses, news, redirections, leaps, connections and joys that this season has brought.
Winter in Ontario:
By Lawren Harris, who was part of Ontario’s Group of Seven painter group.
Winter in Vermont:
Winter Light, linocut by William Hays
Painting (not a photograph) of a winter scene by the amazing Abe Toshiyuki
Scene painted by Robert Strong Woodward, titled My Winter Shelf
East coast winter scenes:
Painted by Aldro Hibbard, a painter who worked and lived in the same region and at the same time as Robert Strong Woodward. I used one of his paintings for my lunar essay in January, the new moon in Capricorn.
Winter in Belgium. Indoors.
Painting by Fernand Toussaint. This reminds me of green life indoors and that sowing the garden of 2021 can start in these weeks.
May your day go well.
