|"Gray day" by Hilary J. England|
8" x 10" oil on canvas, 2013
The snow has melted off, and now it is a balmy 62 degrees here in PA, strange for Christmas, but somehow nice and comforting. The clouds rolled in, and yet, the feeling of happiness is still here, as we approach the end of 2013. It was a hard year, very hard. I know in my heart 2014 will be a good one, full of potential, promise, and progress. I just feel it inside. Last year, it was strange, but I knew 2013 would be a hard year, and it could be as obvious as it being the number "13," or just a gut feeling I had, and it proved to be so. But, this new year, well, I just think it will be a good one.
So, here is a little local landscape "Gray day" of the late Autumn/early winter fields in the grayness of a gentle rainy day. I do love the gray, as much as I love the sun and the azure blues of a clear day, all things work together to be beautiful.
