Winter Trees II
Updated: Sep 13, 2021
This painting, and the one posted last Friday, show the view from a kitchen (more precisely - standing at the kitchen sink). Placing this painting next to the first one works to make more apparent the cold of deep winter. The contrast in the lighting between the first and second paintings works to make the winter light seem unwelcoming; nature shooing us out of our yards and into our shelters.

Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant:
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcom.
Meditations Divine and Moral
"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?
And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt;
and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again'."
