This week’s post is inspired by some artwork I did in my very first Photoshop class about three years ago. It was based on a poem by Lewis Carroll called “A Boat Beneath a Sunny Sky.” The class assignment required all of the students to do a “nonrepresentational” (abstract) artwork based on one line of the poem. The line I chose was “Autumn frosts have slain July.”
I know this line deals with the transition between summer and fall, but I think this assignment came to my mind today because we have reached another transitional time of year. The end of November is almost near, and soon it will be Christmas! My goal for this week’s post is to present images that capture the transition between autumn and winter when the bright reds, oranges, and browns of fall give way to the silver, gray, and white shades of winter frost and snow.
