This is a mixed media piece using 100% cotton fabric ..it includes thread sketching, acrylic and oil paint. The inspiration for this came from the huge but beautiful snowstorm in 2011. The deer, the well-used, old fence, the wonderful old tree, and the thick snow in the air, captured a lovely, winter day in Missouri. I wanted to create the sense of a very cold winter day but incorporate the human warmth with a conversation between Wisdom and a small child concerned about the magnitude of the storm.
"Such a storm," said the Child. "I'm afraid--will we be ok?"
Wisdom leaned down and gathered the child into an embrace and whispered, "Be very still, my Child. Listen to the quiet of it; Look into the beauty of it.
So much peace and So much strength for you In such a storm."
