February’s Browns and Grays

“January and February are my favorite months.  I like the bare branches of trees, structure become visible, and the subtle colors, all sorts of varieties of browns and grays that are seen only at this time of year, brought into focus by the pellucid light that is as close an analogy as I know to the silence out of which my work emerges.”
— Anne Truitt, Prospect: The Journal of an Artist

Here are some of the beautiful grays and browns in my Seattle landscape this February:

    You’re truly a master when it comes to making the subtleties of such landscapes available to the eye. I laughed at myself, when I realized my vision of a line of waterbirds actually was a string of little white buoys. And the reflection in the first photo’s wonderful. It looks like a butterfly tree.
