Sunflowers in Winter

SONY DSC

This winter in Chicago has been cold and gloomy. We’ve had constant snow, record cold, and day after overcast day. But the sunflowers my children brought home one day-they were full of hope. Light in the middle of darkness; a glimpse of summer in the middle of winter. This piece is 18×24, acrylic on canvas. Prints of Sunflowers in Winter available here.

First Snow

A few days ago, very early in the morning, we had the first snowfall of the season. It was light, and lovely, and everything a first snowfall should be. The toddler, baby, and I all threw coats on over our pajamas and ran out to get some photos.
