“Winter”

As promised, here is another one from Seasons mini-series, “Winter”:
img_3854 I had the hardest time with this one. A kind of block~ I don’t know if it’s because I really don’t like winter. As I get older, I don’t seem to handle cold and dark very well.

Anyhoo, for me, the good things about winter are being warmed by a hearth, rest, hibernation and sleep. I wanted to show a blanket of cold over a sleeping earth:

The hard earth below is done with many textured rocks built up into layers:

Over the earth, is a dark stormy sky mottled with forming snow:

And on top of the blanket of cold, through the veil of sleep, snowy sprinkles:

I hope you like this piece, I am satisfied with its overall harmonious and calming feel despite the stormy clouds.
