A cozy reading corner on a sunny spring day. Warm sunlight streams in through the lattice windows, leaving shadows on the wall and lighting up the cherry blossom 'snowglobe' on the bookshelf. In the window is a colorful suncatcher sparkling in the light. Around the hearth are cushy armchairs, with vases of flowers and books and a steaming teacup, but the windows are open to let in the spring breeze. Outside a spring-green willow and beech hedge and red Japanese maple are surrounded by tulips and cornflowers, while a ginger cat stalks through the long grass.

Spring Felicity

I created a rainy autumn day picture and a winter day with snow picture of this reading nook, and now here's a spring day. Warm light streaming in, flowers everywhere, a spring breeze blowing in the open windows, and a suncatcher sparkling in the sunlight.

Four glowing lamps on four lampposts shine through dense fog, illuminating a winding path through the shadows and bare banches of winter trees.

Lanterns in the Fog

I just wanted to do something with lights in a dense fog.

The window was built with a low arch, and filled with lozenge-shaped panes. As soon as I looked out of the window, a gush of wonderment and longing flowed over my soul like the tide of a great sea. Fairy Land lay before me, and drew me towards it with an irresistible attraction. The trees bathed their great heads in the waves of the morning, while their roots were planted deep in gloom; save where on the borders the sunshine broke against their stems, or swept in long streams through their avenues, washing with brighter hue all the leaves over which it flowed; revealing the rich brown of the decayed leaves and fallen pine-cones, and the delicate greens of the long grasses and tiny forests of moss that covered the channel over which it passed in motionless rivers of light.' - Phantastes, by George MacDonald

Phantastes: Borders of Fairy Land

A cozy reading corner on a snowy winter day, with a ginger cat sitting gazing at the blazing fire. Around the hearth are cushy armchairs, with glowing candles and stacks of books and a steaming mug to complete the comfort. Outside a frost-covered willow and beech hedge are obscured by the falling snow.

Winter Serenity

Snow outside, a fire on the hearth, comfortable chairs, good books, something hot to drink, and a cat for company. My ideal of a cozy winter day! I created a rainy autumn day picture of this reading nook, and now I've changed it to a winter day with snow.

This is my digital artwork, not a photograph.

Five sprays of fireworks reflected in the dark water beneath - a bursts of pale blue, rose pink, bright gold, and mint green, and in the center sparkles of all the colors of the rainbow.

Fire on the Water

Happy New Year!

Just some fun with a fireworks model.
