Black blue indigo sky.
ever so slightly
tilted, furl up
Along the river hoarfrost drapes the bushes, the trees. Like a thin white sheet of silk.
Hoarfrost rims my peripheral vision.
The black blue indigo sky becomes crystal clear blue of deep cold. Crystal clear blue of deep cold above the white of snow blanketing trees, ground and roofs.
Thin gauzes of pinkish,
purplish cross the blue.
My cell says -25 in Lake Placid, at home I read -12. I’ve been walking for 45 minutes!!!!
Nadia Korths, word image, created on 1.16.12 in Saranac Lake. Paired with stryofoam relief print Lemons/Limes created on 1.17.12. Per audience selection during Open Mic at Bluseed Studios on 1.19.12.
Peter and I visited with Deb and David at the north end of Lake George last Friday night. During my 7 am walk along the lake (after a lovely swim – lst and only one so far this season – rain – cool) I found these bullet cases/casings. And this morn. I created Landscape Thru Door and Landscape Thru Door Rubbed (below) with them.
I wish Deb and David would get their websites up: talk about wicked felt work from Deb and David’s pottery – whew!
Red Sunset, print, April 2009, Nadia Korths
In late April while in Montreal I watched the trees go from bare to neon green leafing buds. I created prints for two days. And then my treat was to enjoy the 3 day visit of two creatives, Sue and Terry Young, from Jay, NY.
Terry took a wonderful shot of the cantelope man from the Marche Jean Talon.
Look at his expression!
Sue, who has been working on a huge project with 2 other women, involving 900 children from 9 school districts in Clinton County, got a well-deserved break from it all in Montreal. The resulting mural celebrating the Lake Champlain Quadcentenial is made with tiles from each of those students (I am boggled by the work involved). It should be installed this month, June 2009, on the gov’t bldg in Plattsburgh.
