Winter painted

Take the landscape.
As gray as winter.

Add some color:

Blue up the sky,

Grow the fields green,

Streak a sunset,

et voila-
it's spring, summer, or fall.

Pastel, 8x10, $125.

Firebird ballet

In Stravinsky's ballet The Firebird is half-woman, half-bird.
In folklore The Firebird, a "heat bird", is large with majestic plumage that glows brightly emitting red, orange, and yellow light. Like a bonfire. A flame. The feathers keep glowing even if removed and can light a large room. The mystery of the feather has illuminated the hearts of men for many years.

Pastel, 8x10, $150.
