Dana Morris 1998 Christmas Card: Winter Scene, Little Bay, Fairhaven, Massachusetts
With this card I had been home in Fairhaven for over a year. This is the image from my backyard, overlooking Little Bay in Fairhaven. Fresh after a winter snow, clumps of snow cling to the cedar tree. Some stalks of sea grass stand tall in silhouette, with Girl Scout Island in the distance. I try to use the darkened foreground to create a perspective on the landscape. It is a heavy winter sky. This was the first winter since my Mother's death. The image of Little Bay is appropriate, it was her favorite view.
