they stood true
her sentries
among the wild weaving weedy seeds
 her protectors
fungi who are from the underworld
and the heavens

snow has arrived
days are cold
nights even colder
pretty sure this snow is here for the season
so pretty under the light of the big moon
 at night



  1. How lovely to see your excellent drawing painted with colour. It has a lovely symmetry to it.
    You make the most beautiful jackets. I like her fingerless gloves too.
    Your home area is just amazing, and interesting to see it with the Spring version on the right. What a different way of life from here. I'm sure it can be hard but also looks idyllic.

    1. Hi Sheila,
      Thank you for enjoying the painting. I was not sure about the red of the fungi with all the other colors….
      I wish I had a jacket like this and it is glove season here, hat too.

      I do love living here. Wild, often quiet, beautiful and touched with magic in the mundane. You are right there is some work to it. But maybe no more than other homes. Except a chainsaw is required at times.

      It is snowing at the moment and so pretty.

  2. Tammie ook in kleur is deze dame heel mooi!

    Wat mooi dit winterse,een stilte beeld
    van vers gevallen sneeuw.

    lieve groet Christiene.

    Tammie also in color this lady is very beautiful!

    How beautiful this winter, a silence image
    of fresh snow.

    dear Christiene.

  3. I love the colours! She is a Tibetan wife.

    The snow is also from Tibet.

    1. Thank you Dori, so fun to look anew through you!

  4. You are so lucky to have snow amongst your majestic pines. What a magical place you live in.

    1. Yes, I do enjoy the snow. Even the the spirit of hibernation that comes along with cloudy days.
      But today the sun is out and this mornings walk/wandering was enlivening.

  5. I love that they are her sentries. And I equally love your beautiful home in the snow.

    1. It is fun to see what a piece is about, after it is completed.
      I am enjoying the snow Jeanie, the sun is out today and it is gorgeous!
      Thank you!


Lovely of you to drop by! I love hearing from you~
