Dana Morris 2003 Pen & Ink Christmas Card: Princeton, Massachusetts
Snowflakes In The Air
This pen and ink drawing was of a farm on the hillside of Mount Wachusett, in Princeton Massachusetts. My friends Lee and JoAnn were visiting me the winter I lived in Leominster, MA. We went for a drive after a heavy spring snowfall, and ended up driving along the snowcovered hills of Princeton. It was a late snowfall, one of the last of the year. We had great fun driving the back roads, and seeing such beautiful vistas. This is a late afternoon image, the shadows fall off to the left, as the sun begins its decline. What I like most about this is it is such a pure New England image. It could be Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine or Massachusetts, but it is very New England.
