This winter, I do believe I shall make the effort of spending my days in a coffee shoppe and bookstore. I miss reading and the lack of it in my recent past must be remedied. In fact, I may even start tonight. My sketchbook shall, of course, accompany me. I also have intentions of making donuts and latkes, mainly donuts. Coffee dates with a few friends are essential as well. What do you want your winter to look like, love?

There are times when I am looking at an artist’s work and the more I look, the more emotionally drawn to it I feel. This does not happen particularly often, but when it does, seeing the beauty of it moves me to tears. Part of that is simply because of beauty and the wonderment that something so lovely exists in this world. Another, larger, part of it is the desire that it evokes a desire within me to make something just as beautiful; it makes me want to know that I too can produce something of that level of beauty.
Do you see what I mean here? The way the light is warm and reflected with glass, the detail of the twined walls is elegant. This is an example of sound abatement (lessening of sound in industrial spaces with large amounts of sound reflective objects.) One thing I like about these works is the colour schemes.
