Yes, it is Summer here in the northern hemisphere, so why the snow and ice theme?
This has been a particularly hot and dry season, the worst on record for us here in Saskatchewan. Forest fires are ravaging our northern communities, blanketing much of the province in smoke.
We have had little rainfall this year, many of the farmers and ranchers are beginning to plow stunted parched fields under. My own garden refuge has been tough to keep alive with water restrictions in place by the city. Faithful watering just doesn't have the same life giving effect as Mother Nature's own rain. Even my old cats who love to lay in the cool shade of the trees would rather hide out in the house near the air conditioning unit.
So, to put myself in a "cooler" head space I decided to create a piece featuring all things snow and ice. I am a Canadian, ice water runs in my veins!
Thanks to Mischief Circus for many of the gorgeous elements in this piece.
