Quiet Moments.............

My thoughts typically turn to birds, nesting, and Spring while in the grip of a Michigan winter.  As a result, my art heads in the same direction.  With Quiet Moments, I envision a soft Spring morning with gentle breezes rocking the cozy little nest suspended from a branch.  Mama bird is watching from a lower perch and all seems right with the world.  These thoughts calm me as I look out the window at my snow encrusted world.
