Memories in Ice

I know this is making my blog look uneven, to have both traditional and digital stuff, but alas, it's what I finished today, and if it's really really basic and crude, well, I'm slowly learning how to manipulate these things. When I started this last week, the stupid program kept crashing. I saved every couple minutes today, just to be safe, but it seems to have gotten over whatever it was that it was doing.

This was the month where everyone important in my life was gone--partner out of the country , boys at Cape Cod with their dad, and even my mom gone. The boys are back, but I still feel like this sometime, like I'm all alone in an empty house (the dog doesn't count), haunted by echoes of distant joy.


  1. This has got good composition and color. It's also got a strong atmospheric sense of mood and expression.

    I think it's fine to have more than one kind of art on your blog--I sure do it! Anyways I think your digital art harmonizes well with your traditional art.

  2. my kids are little so it's sometimes hard to imagine this feeling, but when they are out of the house, the silence does get unsettling after a while.

    have fun with the photoshop (or whatever program you're using) - there's so much you can do with it!

  3. ((hugs))
