The Arctic breath of the Winter Wolf...


Old 'Possum Woman Speaks:

The Arctic breath of the Winter Wolf, 
chills the walls,
and rattles the roof.
As the temperature falls,
he blows down the door,
gnaws on your bones,
and howls for more.


Right side of journal was sketched on December 4th at Nolde Forest during Nature Journaling: What's green in winter? A bit of Holly branch, leaves, and berries.


What's on my mind? An Arctic Blast on it's way! It will be bone-chilling cold by the end of the week.


The Winter Wolf was painted in Kay's kitchen on December 12th. I had been watching a youtube video of an artist blowing watercolors across her paper and wanted to give it a go. It certainly was fun! And since this is the first time ever trying that technique, I will accept the results. Can't wait to try it again!
