Commitment: the state of being emotionally impelled to do something. My commitment is to making art, loving life and doing well.

Daily Artworks... my continuing challenge for 2015: Observe and record. Record and observe. And stretch - s-t-r-e-t-c-h - myself.
What will I discover?

Birches and their Neighbors - Day 9

The Colors of Birch-bark

Birch-bark on a Bright Day
- intense sunshine reveals brilliant colors  

It's a cool and crisp day, with full strength winter sunshine reflecting off the snow. On a day like this, you see more color everywhere because there is more light to reveal it. Birch bark's natural colors go way beyond pale grays and beiges, they are oranges and pinks and yellow-oranges, glowing in the sunlight.

Wow! Not a candidate for the black and white treatment!

Next you'll be trying to make me believe it holds the colors of a Tahitian sunset if properly lit by snow-light. :)
