ROBERTA MCNAUGHTON: TWELVE MONTHS OF WINTER: February 2 - 26, 2012

"Twelve Months of Winter.

This is the slow weight of winter, where light appears unnaturally

bright or unnaturally tinted, and snow disguises the familiar under a

blanket of white.

The beauty of winter comes in its test of our resolve. We transform

and adapt with weather's unpredictable shifts and the lucky ones

embrace the snow and the cold and learn to skate.

This is the collection of two winters, roughly twelve months of

painting winter."

-- Roberta McNaughton, 2012
