Vision 119: Camellia & Winter Peace


Dear Laura,

I know you would love this flower blooming in my garden right now.  It is a camellia. We planted this for our son since his birthday falls in January and it blooms around that time.  A blooming beauty when the rest of the garden is quiet.  However- our daffodils are also peeking up from the ground right now!  I enjoy seeing these camellia buds unfold as much as seeing them completely open. One of nature’s most intricate sculptures!  I am looking forward to seeing what you create from this brilliantly colored inspiration in the middle of your monochromatic winter.

Dear Tina,

Winter has finally set in and I have been bunkered down indoors, not really wanting to go out in the freezing New England cold. That was until the SNOW arrived! After getting cleaned up from the blizzard I got my snowshoes on and headed over to the Bluff~my winter sanctuary. I was one of the only people out and it was amazingly peaceful. I have been thinking a lot about solitude and what that means in my life. I wanted this picture to convey the stark, stillness of winter and the peace that can be found in this dormant season. I also thought you might appreciate the color palette. :)
