The reason I chose the title for this piece was because I believe winter is just as wonderful a season as spring, summer, and fall. It's pretty much the same way I think about growing old -- I still have strength and beauty. I am always inspired by the shapes of bare trees as seen against a colorful sky. This is the second of my series "Bare Trees" which have been shown many times in Arkansas galleries.
Nature is my favorite subject - either in painting or drawing. My strongest design element is shape - both positive and negative. That is one reason why I love to depict trees in any season, especially bare trees that reach their limbs up to the sky leaving spaces through which the sky peeks through. There is a certain human aspect in a tree shaped by its environment. Variations in line, hue, and value also mark my work. My personality is calm and steady, and it always shows up in my art.
