Sold a copy of this file on iStock today. It doesn’t look like that yet. In fact, today we took a walk at Robb State Park in Fruita and we were stripping off our jackets. It’s beautiful outside. Actually, it’s time to hike in the canyons. The golden leaves are gone, but the air is crisp and bright and the high desert sun is warm. Lots of Canada geese and mallard ducks are resting on the lakes.

Winter Mail

It’s still sunny here in Grand Junction, but the weatherman says snow is on the way for our valley. Here’s a photo I took of a mailbox in front of one of the houses in our neighborhood. Looks Christmasy, doesn’t it?

Yellow to Purple Post Card from Zazzle.com

I also sold a postcard of my Yellow to Purple abstract acrylic on canvas. I have always admired the quiet prints of Josef Albers. This painting, part of a series of works that move from complement to complement, pays homage to Albers, but takes a different direction. I like to lay my acrylic on thick and loose.

Rime in Spring

Hoarfrost

Today at lunch, Alden and I took a drive across the base of the Colorado National Monument on the old highway (340). We are between late winter storms and some of the snow that has been hanging around since before Christmas is starting to melt. Freezing fog clung to the banks of the Colorado River, creating a magical scene that transformed itself into a more ordinary one with the first rays of the sun.

Rime in Early Spring

Fog hovers,
silent as a veil
over the coy face
of a virgin,
skimming bare limbs
tenderly,
Glittering them
with fragile
diamonds of ice.
Then, all at once,
the sun.
Everywhere
the rice-like grains
shower down!
