Etched on the Sky

Against the Sky

My blog-friend, "Stardust" wrote a post where she compared each season to different art (etching, watercolour, oil painting). I loved that notion of winter as etching. The trees are exposed, revealing the finest details of their skeletons. The landscape is reduced to black and white and greys (though not on the bright, sunny days).

Bare Trees

I walk through the park and admire this scene as though in an art gallery, astonished at the exquisite work and skill of the artist.

Thanks Diane Hammond for the info

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

  1. Hi,again,
    I like to see bared trees in winter. They are so beautiful. Sometimes people forget simple beauty of trees, i think.

  2. Isn't it grand to take the thought of a friend and remember it in our own life? You've shown some great etchings here.
