Yes, I am kicking off week one of my winter distraction with... winter. It makes no sense, and it's frankly a little cruel. But then, this winter has been cruel. And it's simply the first thing that occurred to me when I started thinking of ideas for weekly themes. It's what we have been living and breathing and fighting for months, not only here in Minnesota, but in countless other places. So it makes sense that it's the first thing that would occur to me, especially after a week spent hiding from it on a distant, warm beach. So, before it's gone, I'm going to spend this week trying to embrace it.
I'll be back throughout the week with three paintings or sketches of this most bitter of seasons.
And then... let's leave it behind.
