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 Neighbours - Day 6

Birch With Drifted Snow

Windblown Snow   
- caught in the roughness of birch bark

Black and White version

We are building up an accumulation of snow, a few inches at a time.
The wind blows the tiny snow crystals away from exposed areas, and the particles get caught and build up on rough surfaces like tangled grasses, weathered rocks and in this case, heavily textured birch bark.

How does this one compare black and white to color versions? Just wondering -- the snow makes the birch look a little timeworn.

It's interesting to compare the almost monochromatic color version to the black-and-white version. Preference?

I prefer the color because it makes me look even more carefully.
