Snowflakes on My Tongue

Winter in Laguna Beach

December, 2003

As a native Californian, when I think about winter, I think about…, I think about…, um, well, come to think of it, I don’t think about winter very much at all. Somehow when the sun is shining and the waves are gently lapping up on the beach, it is hard to imagine snow and cold weather in any form.

So, please educate me! What does winter mean to you? Frost on the windows? Skating on the local river? A cozy fire in a warm cabin? Sliding on snow? Or maybe it’s about packing yourself off to a warm beach in Hawaii? Come into the gallery and see how the artists interpreted their feelings of the winter season. Or click on the images below for a better view of the pieces chosen for this exhibit.

And the winners are...

It was a very close vote. Thanks to all of you who voted for their favorite. I will be choosing the winner of the $50 gift certificate as soon as I can find someone to reach into the bucket and pull out the winner.
