Blackberry Winter

tunnel book with watercolor, illustration, moss, and bark, 9 x 9 x 11, 2011/2016

In the Appalachian Mountains, “blackberry winter” is the last cold snap of spring before warmer weather sets in. While the chill of winter whiteness surrounds the interior scene, the crow, bunny, and daffodils suggest the renewal of spring. Readers peer through the knothole of a mossy tree to view a beautiful garden landscape in transition, a strange period of weather suspended between winter and summer.
