Birthday of a New Year

Pastel, 5x7

Light the paint brushes.
Release a rainbow.
Paint a new year.

And Happy Birthday Micah.
Thank you for helping add color to the world each day.

Boston Snowpetals

Acrylic, then photo in setting.
16 x 18, original NFS
[fine art print available]

It's dawn.
Devoid of color.
The world wakens white.
What now are snowflakes
were last spring magnolias.
Now 'petals' have covered the ground that was green.
And although just 5 am– footprints are seen.
Behind a flake now lights are alive-
a street lamp, a door light, a new sun to rise.

Beach blizzard

Pastel 5x7,

Barren beach.
A lone skier.

Along the shore.
Slices the snow.

The cookie thief


Smells fill the kitchen.
Butter and spice.
Tho' hidden from sight-
a cookie thief strikes.

Nutcracker: Snow Queen costume

White tulle and satin-soft as the snow.
Sparkles and crystals, plus a red rose.

Into the forest– she'll dance on her toes.
