Heading Into Winter

Judy Frisk - Heading into Winter

11X15 Watercolor, acrylic inks, gouache.
Well, I started this as a mandala in an attempt to take a break from thinking about the mid-term elections tomorrow and days of volunteer textbanking to help get out the vote. So with all that hanging over like an approaching storm, the mandala quickly turned into something else…and soon I had two barren trees on a rainy, stormy day, heading into winter with Fall colors behind. I guess I could ‘pretty it up’ with some splatters of Fall leaves, but this particular Fall continually feels like a big winter storm is always lurking overhead, before we’ve even had a chance to appreciate the peak of Fall.
