This is certainly the simplest of the four abstracts and probably, for the time being, my favourite. It seems to have about it an air of innocence and purity – at least, that’s what I hoped to convey! But, of course, it’s for you to decide.
Like the previous two, this is a genuine natural pattern in the snow – nothing added and nothing subtracted except the texture of the snow. If pressed to give a title I would probably choose ‘The Playground’ – I can see the movement and exuberance of children dancing. But I’m quite content just to enjoy the pattern in the space. See in it what you will.
There is something of an expletive about this pattern – it’s not difficult to provide a first and last letter and an appropriate number of asterisks to suit your choice! But I’m attracted by the way the marks use the available space in, for me, a very expressive manner.
So, I think we can say farewell to the winter. But before it officially ends I would like to post one or two ‘winter abstracts’. These are simply black and white abstract patterns created by plants, stubble and grasses protruding through the carpet of virgin snow. Initially I planned to include them in a single post, but it then seemed that each required its own space.
