A long forgotten Dream by KaanaMoonshadow A long forgotten Dream by KaanaMoonshadow
Since I didn't see a single snowflake this year, I felt I needed to compensate my lack of proper winter with some ice and snow of my own - and so this artwork came to life. It's a lot more surreal than my usual work and was a true pain to postwork (damn you, snow! :shakefist:), but I really like how close the result came to my original idea.

But now I'm curious - what do *you* think when you look at this work? What associations and thoughts come to mind? Please let me know in a comment below! :D

I would have gladly shipped you all the snow from my area! I had to call AAA to get my car pulled out of snowbanks within blocks of my home twice this winter. Really cool pic btw. :)

Great looking image! We're the same here - had hardly any snow this winter.

It is hauntingly surreal, but I did have an instant pang of "wedgie!!!"

This is a really beautiful image. We had a very short winter here and I miss it already. For me this image tells a story about someone waiting for something or someone to bring spring and warmth, holding on to the last thing that is precious. I think it is a beautiful image

Thanks - I'm really glad you like it! :tighthug: What you're describing in your comment are exactly the thoughts that inspired this image, so I'm doubly glad to see I was able to bring that across for you. :glomp:

And yes, winter never truly came this year and now it's Spring already. *sigh* Time to dust off my skirts and T-Shirts. ;)

Right this moment it invokes feelings of "Graaaaah! Stupid snow enough already!"  So where are you anyway that you got lucky with no snow?!  ;)

Western Germany. Where I live, there hasn't been a single flake all winter. XD

Maybe I could trade some balmy spring sun with you? ;)

Ahh never realized you were on that side of the world for some reason ;)  I hope to gawds our sun is coming soon, tho I think hubby mentioned something bout more snow being possible this week. :shakefist:  This is the most snow we've had in the last few years, so yeah, ready to be done with it.  Would gladly send a snowball your way :giggle:

It would probably melt on that journey, so unfortunately I have to decline your kind offer - but I very much appreciate the thought! :D

Have some :sun: in the meantime, and don't despair - Spring is Coming! :w00t:
