Sleepy Sundays: Something Pleasant

Pleasant Night © 2018 Snapping Turtle Arts

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a request from someone I know personally. This weekend a good friend of mine sent me a text that said “make me…something pleasant” and went into some short detail.

Although the request was simple, it made my heart warm to think this friend thought of me when she was going through a very rough time. So I dreamt up this image while experiencing this arctic freeze a good portion of my country is going through right now. I couldn’t help but think of the poor little creatures outside that are trying to endure these harsh conditions. They go through these blistering conditions with such grace. The thought had me pondering about nature itself and how it does much the same—with grace. Then it came to me, the beautiful swan. If ever there was a graceful being, oh you had better believe, that’s it. Yes, I think that’s something pleasant.

What is “something pleasant” to you? Do you like swans?

Have a graceful Sunday!


 

Fun facts: This piece is not only the first entry to the gallery of 2018, but also the first print to enter Snapping Turtle’s archive since the beginning of the merge with CardCastles. This is all part of something bigger you will begin to see this year.
