Wet Canvas January Challenge

Wet Canvas January Challenge

I thought this would be fitting to post this morning --- our temperatures have dropped to 20F -- VERY COLD!!! It's from a WetCanvas January challenge to paint a winter scene. Photos were provided and since snow is rare for us I thought I'd give it a go.

It's also back to work for me -- with a frantic, frenetic January ahead. The cold or bug is still with me, so I won't be moving very fast and the frantic will have to wait a week or so until I'm ready for it!

Happy return to routine!

Oh Lin, your snow scene is gorgeous -- and snow is so difficult to do -- you did an outstanding job on this! I love it, love it, love it. We, however, have an actual snow scent out our windows. Brrr.
Take good care of yourself and get lots of rest.
