Inspiration came from a view through our front window of the bare trees against the cold wintry sky.  I am so thankful that in our modern age we are able to enjoy the elements of nature without being exposed to them.  Provision has been given to us were a place of safety and protection can be found, our refuge.

This is a palette knife painting and is different for me as I was working with arches representing the trees as they crisscross. My husbands take on it was that it looked like mosaic stain glass in a cathedral and this added to the feeling of a sanctuary or place of refuge. If you are new to my site and would like to view my complete portfolio, it may be viewed in my web gallery.
