Snow Day!

Yesterday a big storm blew through leaving six inches of snow (unusual for us). We've had snow about once a winter since we moved here, but it always warms up and is gone within a day or less. But, cold weather is supposed to hang around for a few more days so today was a snow day! We went out to explore late this afternoon. I was particularly struck by the rusts and ochers in the trees and grasses, against the violet sky and cool expanse of the snow. I came home with more than a few ideas for paintings and etchings or drypoints.

Good ideas here for your beautiful paintings.

Stay warm! Today, we have zero degrees, with over 12" in the forecast!

Beautiful scenes! I love the way snow looks but don't love shoveling it. We're in for another snowstorm tomorrow and it's bitterly cold here. At least the scenery is beautiful.

I would love to see some of your paintings with a snow theme. I've always wondered about how to do tonalism with white on the ground. Enjoy the beauty! I think winter is the most elegant of all seasons.

I agree with Janelle! I would also love to see a snow painting from you Deborah.

That second photo in particular is stunning and... I thought it was a photo of a painting. !
