"Late Winter Afternoon - Woodland Edge"

Thought I'd post another image from last weekend's snowstorm - it was Saturday evening after we had shoveled and plowed out the acreage from under 12 inches of snow; I wanted to get out before it was too late for some photo opportunities in the "neighborhood" . I walked up through some property I've had permission to "explore" and found after about 10-15 minutes that I really needed my snowshoes! I managed to plow through drifts over to the creek's (Waterman Creek) edge from above. The sun was already lower than I thought it'd be but the foreground being in shadow really didn't look so bad...it created an interesting "deep" woodland look - like the dead of winter, so I went with it! Hope you enjoy it!
Tomorrow and the next day are bringing more of the same precipitation. They're promising 5-10 inches more snow but we'll see what shakes out. Unfortunately they're also promising high winds, which will put the ca-bosh on photos until the "dust" settles...time will tell I guess! Either way, it looks like winter is here to stay for now.
Next weekend is bringing some things of interest as well - 2 weekend art exhibits and sales that I'll be participating in!
Each year the artists of this area get together for a Holiday Sale, and this year is no different - except - this year there are two events on the same weekend!
The first Holiday sale that I'm participating in is at Barb McGee's Gallery on Main Street in Peterson, Iowa. Barb will be holding her Holiday sale for several artists, I'm fortunate to be included again this year! The Holiday Open House will be held on Saturday December 5 from 9:00AM to 5P.M. and Sunday from Noon to 3PM.
Take some time and check out the artists represented at Barb McGee's Holiday Open House!
The second Holiday sale and exhibit I'm participating in is a new gallery in Lake Park, Iowa! This exhibit will be an Art and Fine Antique sale and is being held in the former Methodist Church building in Lake Park. This new gallery, the Systolic Studio, is holding this exhibit and sale, and it will have a host of top quality artists and artwork and antiques over a 3 day event! I am very proud to be included!
The event is inside and up the stairway on the west entrance and this exhibit and sale opens on Friday, December 4 from 3-8PM, again on Saturday December 5 from 10AM-6PM, and Sunday December 6 from 11AM-3PM; be sure and take it in - you'll be in for a real treat!
There's a lot ahead but first of all - keep warm and enjoy the season!
