There is something about the stark beauty of Peconic Bay in winter.
Ice defines edges.
Crusts of snow blur.
It can be purifying or punishing.
Scallop shells tossed by the frozen waves mix with snow.
The bayshore draped in its winter jewels.
The clouds, sea and ice are layers of blue tones.
Beautiful and still.
Indoors, I admire my beach finds.

Winter is a great time for doing indoor things, such as visiting art galleries that I missed during those summer beach days. Monika Olko Gallery in Sag Harbor carries art by Shelter Island artist Kia Pedersen. A few of her sea inspired paintings are below. Beautiful blues!
