Kindling Box


readying for winter
filling my wooden box with kindling
thinking it would be nice to paint it


sitting under the autumn sun
enjoying creating art outsie
now my box has a painting on it!
today is the first day it is cold enough to use 
the kindling in this box
to start a fire
a new season has begun!

  4. This is very beautiful. I love how her long, lovely hair flows into the mountains/hills. I also like how you did the sky, dark to light. :)

  6. Your essence blankets nature and your true nature blankets you with every intimate encounter. Together... you keep each other warm comfortable and truly alive as you shine brightly as a guiding star to the others who see you from their mountain tops.

  8. what a great and somehow mysterious painting! I love the idea of art on a kindling box- makes something bleak (the cold!!) somehow brighter.
