Winter Reflections

There is something quite special about these gouache and pastel prints by Rachell Sumpter. The bright, yet soft colors bring you in and reflects the silent nature of these people and their culture. The images seem perfect for this time of year when winter brings snow and a magical silence to a forest or empty parking lot.

Peace and silence is something I need right about now. Work is hectic and my credit card number was stolen thus tying up my bills and Christmas money. Grrr....why do people do this?! Ok, venting session over...I know other people have it worse. I just wanted to say that stealing credit card numbers is NOT cool. Back to procrastinating and looking at lovely art...

I got my whole wallet stolen in September. They got like 2,000 dollars from me in a matter of one hour. SO stupid! I feel ya!!!! One thing to keep in mind Christmas is about spending time with loved ones and celebrating life, so maybe a simple homemade gift would suffice for freinds and family. That is what I am doing because I am still broke from the wallet issue.

Have a better day!

Sorry to hear about your theft woes! I hope it's won't be too much of a nightmare getting the charges contested and hopefully nothing having to come out of your pocket. This time of year, especially. :(

These pieces are so soft and lovely; kind of like walking into a secret place beyond the clouds.
