|"Quiet" ©Mary Montague Sikes|
During a winter snowstorm, she enjoyed the quiet and serenity that settled over her street as snowflakes collected on the ground and in the trees. Growing up in Mississippi, Farrah had never before seen snow. Now, she needs to capture the feeling of quiet in her painting. The colors she selects create a lively "quiet" for her.
What do you think? Does Farrah's painting represent "quiet"?
For those of you who have just joined this blog journey:
Evening of the Dragonfly is a novel set in the 1980s, a time less complicated than today. Farrah Ferand has a high school art teaching job in a small Virginia town. She meets Dirk Lawrence, a businessman from the city, who takes an interest in her and in her painting and is helping her build a studio over the garage in her rented home. Farrah is thrilled to have the studio because she has a one-person art exhibition scheduled. As she works on new paintings, Farrah realizes things about herself, her relationships, and the tragic loss of her mother. We encounter some of her realizations as new paintings and parts of painting are unveiled each day during the A to Z Challenge. My book is available in trade paperback and as an e-book.
