Title: South for the Winter
Medium: Acrylic and graphite on wood panel
Series: 100 Square Project
I am Canadian. We have very long winters. Especially this one, it seems. We've had frigid temperatures well below the norm for weeks at a stretch. It has just been wicked cold. And when the temperature gets high enough that your skin doesn't freeze on contact with the air, we get a load of snow dumped on us. It's been the cycle for the last couple months. And I, for one, am more than a little sick of it.
We've never been the type to go south for the winter. Some people I know do it every year... they pick somewhere warm, like Cuba or Mexico, and go spend a week on a beach. My family went once, when my son was young. We went to Cuba, and spent our vacation playing in the ocean. But I have to admit, by the end of the week, I was bored and more than ready to come home. Neither my husband nor I are the type of person that can sit around and do nothing for any length of time. And there really wasn't much else to do.
This year I'm fantasizing of going south. Anywhere, just away from this damn cold and snow. I am wistfully looking at my photos from last year's trip to Portugal. It wasn't warm enough to swim in the ocean, but I could walk the beach every day and soak up the sun. 20°C is balmy in January, and I enjoyed every minute of it. It was glorious.
"South for the Winter" hints at the sunsine breaking through the dull, wintry grey. The red and gold promise better days ahead. I catch an echo of a bird in flight, escaping the dreariness. One day, that will be me.
