"Winter Trees"

Here is what I see looking at out the window these days!  I decided to create a punchneedle design reflecting this 'winter' scene.

Now that it is completed I have decided that enough with these drab, cold winter pieces.  Standby for some brighter colors - as bright as my 'quiet' personality will allow anyway.

Off with the blahs!  I'm thinking spring and sunshine and color!!!

  1. There is nothing wrong with grays. This is a beautiful piece.

  2. I agree with Roberta! I'll be ready for more color in the spring, but for now I'm loving the somber grays. I have always loved the work of Andrew Wyeth and his preference for the "bones" of the winter landscape. I just googled for the actual quote, here it is: "I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter."
    You are really taking off with punch-needling, Penny, this original piece is lovely! It takes me back to a series of trees I did in various media in college in the 70's.

  3. Oh gosh, I don't mean to diminish greys as I too love them - I just think that right now something in my spirit is calling out for color and fun.

  4. I know what you mean! For the Bead Journal Project 2011, I was so desperate for color, that I started with the month of July rather than January. I suppose I will have to do January eventually. But not now. I too need color!

  5. Lovely but color sounds like fun too!
