In Mother Nature's Studio

When Mother Nature takes out her glitter, get out of the way. This past Thursday, she bedazzled our whole area in a thick layer of it. We didn't even bother leaving the house. We just sat tight and watched her work.

She's the only artist I know who can get away with this sort of unapologetic, over-the-top behaviour. How does she do it? She makes it look so easy. It's like it's second-nature or something... I wish I knew what brand of glue she used.

Truth be told, Mother Nature has always been one of my favourite artists. I find her work eminently inspirational and timeless. Her use of lines is magical. She's got repetition and composition down to a science. Her way with light and shadow is to die for, and her colour-mixing: perfection! It's obvious she's a natural. And I am fairly convinced that she can do anything.

Just look at her artwork. It blows my mind! To be perfectly honest, I'm more than a little jealous. I wish I had even one iota of her talent. Luckily, she lets me into her studio whenever I like. I'm trying to take full advantage of that. Who better to learn from, eh?


Note: I'm trying out a new way to respond to comments. You can read about it in the previous post.


  1. Gorgeous photos of a spectacular storm.

  2. Very pretty. But worrysome at the same time. Those Ice Storms have caused many downed trees and power failures for us over the years so I especially hate to see it.

    Your pictures are cool, though. DUH, of course they are, they are of ice!! That was a pun. ~lol~
