Merry Christmas!

Edge of the Field 
8 x 10

This little painting was done about two years ago and posted on this blog around this time in 2010, I think. Recently, I decided to tweak it a bit, adding some cool notes and also the movement of the birds in the sky (click for larger view). It still says a lot about how I feel about the landscape around my home in the fall and winter months -something starkly, simply beautiful and melancholy at the same time. And it also speaks to my place in the scheme of things.

Best wishes to all for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season!

Merry Christmas to you, too, Deborah!
There you are working on Winter and I'm up here in Massachusetts, working on Spring. Is this global warming?1 Hope you are well.

Your tweaks to "Edge of the Field" are beautiful, Deborah, and the birds are a wonderful touch. It makes me want to try incorporating a suggestion of birds like this into my own painting, especially since I'm so drawn to them. Now if you can just find a way to paint some trout into your creeks we'd all be happy (or at least Steve would).
