Snow? Dark days? Icy winds? If you’re tired of winter maybe some “Pastel Power” can help.
I normally prefer to work with fully saturated colors, the kind that make your eyes tingle.
But in the dreariness of winter, beautiful pastels can whisper “Spring is around the corner!” and promise us sweetly-scented blooms nodding in warm breezes.
That’s why I’m excited to share this Art Deco-inspired “Pastel Power” design now — on the full range of Redbubble’s products (including home decor, pet products, clothing, device accessories, puzzles, and prints).
“The Old House in the Trees” is one of my favorite “street” photographs. I shot it with a small camera, long ago. To get the picture I had to pull my car off the narrow, shoulder-less, two-lane, hilly, twisting road and crunch my way through snow for a safe place to stand. When a delivery truck approached at the top of the hill I could see that my car would block its passage. I waved and smiled. The driver pointed at my car. I held up my camera and smiled again. The driver checked his rear view mirror, turned on his flasher lights, got out of his truck, and stood in the street to stop any other traffic from bothering me. I took a few shots, different angles and lighting, then thanked him. He waited patiently while I got back into my car and pulled back onto the road. We both waved, and I left.
