Inspiration: Ice Storm

I am inspired by nature and feel a real connection to it through plants which I love seeing in every season. Another reason to garden!

In the central plains of the USA ice storms are common in late winter. It is too warm to snow, but freezing rain is doable as is sleet and hail.

Last week a very early season ice storm swept in, coating everything. Beautiful sight!  

I never know how or when this experience will appear in my art/painting. I see this and it is internalized. Then when I am not thinking about it - patterns, textures, colors will emerge and I realize this is where it came from. 

Another facet of intuitive art...
