The Snow Queen's Parlor           2011
This scene appeared in the window of my front door and I tried to capture it.  I found myself mesmerized by the image.  I worked most of the month with various layers and text but in the end I decided to stay with the original photo.  I call it the Snow Queen's Parlor, although I know a queen probably doesn't have a parlor.  I decided not to use the poem I wrote because it seemed the image spoke for itself.  That meant abandoning my plan to produce a broadside, but I have learned that it's best to follow the work when it is leading you.
I hope next month's piece will not deal with snow.  Kay Dolezal
