Key to Winter

About 18 "x18" mixed-media painting on canvas. Sides are painted, so the original is ready to hang without a frame.

This piece came together intuitively. Collage elements in the ground include architectural blueprints and maps of Lewis and Clark's path. The string hanging from the key becomes like roots or an upside-down tree in the ground. It speaks to the potential that is hidden beneath the ground during winter. It speaks to tapping into that potential during the darker days when it's hard to see anything bright or inspiring. It's a reminder that even when everything seems cold and dead, there's magic happening underneath it all. It also reminds me of a quote I keep pinned to my bulletin board:

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer. -Albert Camus
