The 'Wednesday Stamper' challenge this past week was to make a 'Dream' artwork. I chose to make a journal cover inspired by this very cold January day, the fierce cold balanced by its wonderous beauty.

I used a water colored background, with one ply napkin pieces. Also, a 'wings' and quote stamps. Etc. There is something so satisfying about art...just to see what comes of an effort.

"Hear! hear!" screamed the jay from a neighboring tree, where I had heard a tittering for some time, "winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel, if you know where to look for it." ~Henry David Thoreau, 28 November 1858 journal entry.
