I just really like this. I started first with the thought of fingerprints, and how each is unique. If you read my blog about My Strangest Chemo Side Effect, you know about how the chemo treatment has erased my fingerprints. So that was on my mind.

It’s winter, and while we haven’t had any snow yet, it’s something I both expect and hope to see. A quiet snowfall is peaceful. These ideas were in my head and I started drawing this. It started as a traditional doily, very classic, and changed as I worked on it.

There’s a bit of a floral slant, a bit of a peacock feather, and a bit of a compass. I don’t know what all was in my head, but I like the result.
