Tuesday 207

painting by Jessica Stammen

Dad & Tim, Ice Fishing

About this painting: On the Saturday morning when our historic February blizzard began and a surprising storm-before-the-storm billowed through, I met my dad and brother on the quiet of Megunticook Lake to go ice fishing. Four holes were drilled and a constellation of fluorescent flags was traced by muffled footprints in powder. The snow was so light; the groans of the ice were so heavy.
