Winter Snow Landscape
The snow and ice continues to blanket most of the northern part of the US, and mercy, if we here in NC are going to be miserable with cold, at least we could hope for a snowflake or two -- but that's not expected this year. So in homage to those folks struggling with record snowfall and for my own wish for a white Christmas, I found a photo reference for snow scene that I just had to paint. If I can't have the real thing, I'll have to settle for painting it!
But more seriously, I am hoping everyone affected by the snow will stay safe .. it has been a most challenging time.
Yesterday was pretty peaceful. I managed to make -- what else -- snowflake cookies (no pun intended) --play cards with mom, watch a movie, finish up some chores. Today we dash outside for scheduled car maintenance and a few other obligations. But it should be a rather quiet time. The cold bothers mom even more than it bothers me (apparently I get my cold intolerance from my mom), so we'll be spending a bit of time before the fireplace.
Stay safe and warm everyone!
