The YEAR IN EMOTION SERIES is continuing...!
"The coming Frost will Mend my Heart" CJ 2011
... and just in time for the new painting in the 'Year In Emotion' series: "The Coming Frost...", which captures the month of November.
To some people bright whites might not be the perfect coloring to depict a month in which the nights are getting longer and the days darker - but to me, the milky, cold, silver light symbolizes best the cooling air of a November day. I can almost feel the damp, chilly mists crawling over my tingling face; it is a memory connected to Autumn family trips to the German countryside in my childhood:
Horses are barely visible in the heavy fog; oaks are shedding their last dying leaves; not a soul stirs in this thick soup of rising moisture as I walk down a tunnel in the thicket next to the barren orchard; my shoes squelch as I try to avoid the murky puddles between frozen ground and the left-overs of last night's rain. After my lone early morning walk I sneak back into our rented wood cabin to put on the water for a hot cup of tea while my parents and sister are still half-asleep in their bunks - I am 12 years old at the time.
The painting itself is 22" x 28", Acrylic and molding mediums on canvas. If you are interested to find out more about this or another painting in this series please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
