Time for Some Output-A Day in the Studio Today


Snowflake-Red, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

I've been busy in-studio today, working with the wax. I'm not quite happy with my results yet, but working on it some and learning as I go. This is one of the first pieces I did today.

I wanted to represent snowing and "winter" as part of my series called "seasonal." I don't know how many of these I'll be able to do, or how many will come together, but I started with this one and I might try to do at least four (one for each season, right?)

It's really timely too, since they had about 6 inches of snow in Houston yesterday. Wow. Who knew Texas got winter, right? Pretty crazy too, because it's been freezing in Austin the past few days. Last night we had a hard freeze and today it was only about 45-50 degrees out. The sun was out though, so that seemed to help things a bit, plus I think I don't notice the temperature so much when I'm busy with tasks at hand. Tonight, since the sun has gone down, it's gotten a bit chilly. I'm going to change out of studio clothing, go bundle up, and have a nice little bite to eat.

Is it winter yet where you live? Have you been keeping warm and busy?

Until next time...

Snowflakes are like women, quite lovely, but so dangerous if you are not dressed appropriately!

I live in Chicago and we can get A LOT of snow some winters. The best I can say about snow is that it can make for some great photographic images.

Mythopolis you and your women. (I think you should go get a crash helmet and some fireproof PJ's. :~)

Kala, I used to live in the snow belt so I can sympathize. It does make for great pictures but also does get cold and wet and make everything damp. It can be pretty but, usually, by springtime, you're probably sick of it.

I love your snowflake, Carol. I like the idea of a seasons series too. Today it actually didn't rain here. It's still mild, but apparently now that the rain is coming to an end for a while we are to expect temperatures to drop. We rarely get snow.
