Illustration Friday -Blur

Mixed Media 3.5 x 2.5 ATC
I love the soft blur caused by falling snow.  This little ATC was inspired by a poem by Robert Frost.

Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


  1. I love it! The illustration is charming and the poem.. I like it too !

  2. I do love this poem, and the illustration goes beautifullly with it. Nice muted colors that are perfect for the snow.

  3. Very nice mood the composition!!!

  4. Delightfully snowy woods! Mr Frost aside the image instantly reminded me of a L.I. wilder book "little house in the big woods"...oooh cosy!

  5. Ah nobody can say it like Mr. Frost.
    Nice Idea, its the perfect image to prepare me for this coming winter :)

  6. Really nice illustration! It's like I'm there!
