Description 2014 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved
the earth is once again exposed revealing all of winter's cruel depredations that ugly storm with all the ice brought down a branch from the magnolia
there it lies unclothed on the front lawn along with a collection of dead leaves and broken twigs that i forgot to rake before the snow fell and fell and fell
the furious cold froze everything entombing all outside neglected white mausoleums stretching just as far as i could see
in several vain foolhardy forays i ran out time and time again in wind and weather trying to latch the ancient door on that old shed behind the house
i don't know what i thought i was protecting crammed as it is with nothing but old junk well past redeeming
i hate to think of going in there but i guess i'm going to have to it really needs a cleaning and there's no one else to do it slug that i am i've put it off too long way past time to haul that useless stuff down to the dump
but not today
today i sit puddled in dirty water now that the ice has melted just like everything outside i too am once again exposed not thinking barely breathing ineluctably reluctant to examine what it is that's left of me 2014 RC deWinter
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
