If you’ve ever read my posts or articles, you’re probably aware that much of my creativity is inspired by the natural world and my family heritage. This piece, crafted earlier in the season and featured in the current edition of Somerset Life, is further evidence of that fact.
Like so many of my creations this year, this one contains subtle references to holidays past--those filled with white divinity candy and inky black mincemeat . . . and the present season too-- one suffused with gray winter skies and white tipped wings. There are few days one doesn’t see delicate feathers floating, like autumn’s spent leaves, swirling, then landing, upon the dark, moist ground.
