as these things go, i just read an email from two of my teachers, and they offered this quote (entirely, perfectly, exactly what i would have loved to have said in the post below (dec 20,2010). if only i were as elegant as artist andrew wyeth). passing it along, with love.
"I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape--the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn't show."
