About a winter ago I did a winter-themed series of watercolors based mostly in Upstate NY for an exhibit at a local café. winter light put me in a wide awake state of mind.
The last few weeks, punctuated by wild storms, figurative and literal, have my mind wide-awake and not always in a good way. Still, I embrace the turbulence. Buffeted by winds, we’re traveling back from the grocery store in Greenwich, New York, hardly able to see the green mountains ahead of us, we’ve spent the summer with our hairs on end and our fists clenched as we sit on the edge of our seats, perversely feeling more alive — more cognizant of life — than we ever could under a crystal clear sky.
