I love walking in the woods on a winter morning, especially just as the sun is coming through the trees. The sky is all kinds of peach colored and the light looks like stained glass to me. Beautiful!

If it’s too cold to venture out into the woods with my dogs I am happy to watch the birds at the feeder outside my glass sliders. They puff themselves up in the cold and feast on sunflower seeds. My husband calls it Bird TV and it never gets old.

I love this old tree that sits on a the bank of the Pere Marquette River in the Manistee National Forest. I love the way the left branch spirals out into space, a fractal if I ever saw one. I love the holes in the trunk and like to imagine the critters that take refuge there.

Walking along the Pere Marquette River one winter morning. The clouds were lit up from the morning sun, pinks and blues reflected in the water. I love living in the Manistee National Forest.

Snow Fence – pastel painting of snow fencing at the beach with snow

Snow Fence, 5×7″ pastel painting of snow fencing at the Lake Michigan beach with snow by Marie Marfia. Available on eBay.

I love snow fencing. I mean I love how it ribbons back and forth on the beach and I love it especially in the winter with snow all around it and the lake is green and the sky is dark. It all just bodes so beautifully.

This painting is based on a walk down a two-track road in the winter time. There was deep, fresh snow all along the two-track road and a pale blush of peach just over the trees on the horizon. I love walking in the Manistee National Forest with my dogs. It inspires my work.
