Winter in Louisiana

A couple years ago, after we had had a rather mild winter in Louisiana, I was greatly amused to see a meme on Facebook that said, “Dear Louisiana, Thank you for participating in winter (dates of our several most wintery days listed here). Love, Mother Nature.”

Yes, we have winter in Louisiana and I have long appreciated the subtle hues of Louisiana’s winter landscape. Thus I was delighted to find a “call for entry” to a national juried exhibition with the theme “The Winter Palette.”

Flight of the Egrets

So of course I submitted and Flight of the Egrets was invited to the exhibition. The venue for this show is the Kavanagh Gallery at Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles, IL. The show runs February 17 through March 25, 2022.

In case this image looks familiar to you, it might be because you have seen it in West Monroe City Hall, where it also hangs as part of the “People, Places, and Settings That Make You Smile” exhibit, which continues through the end of this year.

At the opening reception in West Monroe, an artist friend was looking at this image with me, and she commented that it made her cold just to look at it. Indeed, it was made from the walkway on top of the D’Arbonne Lake dam on a cold, windy day in January 2019.
