Ice Patterns


A few days ago while watching the ice surface covering Springfield Lake a visual delight played out in front of my eyes. The day was cool and the sun was out while the temperature was just about zero. As the wind blew across the lake snow was moved off certain areas revealing patterns of ice and snow. I was reminded of a painting Foxy Loxy created a few years ago after watching a fox sitting and then running on lake ice. While making the painting I became as interested in the patterns of snow and ice as the fox itself. Now is a good time to revisit the surface of the lake.
