winter white

recognize these wings?
hard to miss
my parent's built a 2nd home in vermont
maine, maria and vermont all made me appreciate subdued colors and bright white. and how colors boldly pop in crisp comparison.

i immediately felt the shift and the gangling of color calling me as i walked down mission street upon our return.

which calls to question, how much of our environments shape our inspiration?

(maria's wings, keisha my parent's snow bear & their new home in vermont)

My goodness, the picture of the wings too my breath away. Gorgeous photos!! I love that question about inspiration and environment. Something to ponder. LOVE white too. Living in Minnesota, we see white in the winter for so very, very long. It's definitely has a strong impact. Thanks again for the inspiration.
Cheers
Kari

i love your parent's new home. it almost makes me want to move to maine...ah but the idea of moving again is too overwhelming to seriously consider.

glad to inspire kari & yes moving (even the idea of it!) is overwhelming risa!!
