Grasses in the Snow - Crop
The weather ... it seems to occupy me more than usual. My paint date was cancelled due to snow, which later turned to sleet, and later still, turned to rain, and rain and more rain. We're under a 'flood' advisory with the all the rain that has fallen. We're also expecting another 'dusting' of snow - which, depending on the air mass stream, either will miss us completely, or turn into an 'event,' or turn into more rain. Everything is muddy, damp and wet - and puddles are everywhere. Whew.
This afternoon we make our way to my son's to celebrate Emily's sixth birthday. It truly floors me to think that six years have already passed since the day she was born! I still so vividly remember my son announcing her birth! She's in school, learning to read and write, and so 'grown-up' in her mannerisms and speech. My gracious.
This painting is based on the snow we had last week and the many grasses (which I love!!) we have on our property. Despite all the rain, patches of the white stuff are still lingering in spots, and for me, I'd rather have the snow than all this rain! LOL
Thank you for your most generous and kind comments yesterday. Your encouragement truly keeps me picking up the brush no matter how little time I might have .... Thank you!
Take care today. The Mid-Atlantic states are scheduled for a true blizzard and heavy snow. Please be safe.
