Another Snow

Another Snow

Though I painted this from a photo reference, the snow covering the ground yesterday (2"-4") was almost as pretty. We're not by the water and our ponds were not covered, so I chose instead to paint this scene -- inspired by the snow we did have.

Rain followed the snow, washing all the white prettiness away. The workshop went went, and cutting it by the delayed hour didn't seem to matter much. We had another workshop following the one in the morning with Master Gardeners and then classes in the evening ... a mighty busy time.

Still, spring is coming the "Plant a Row" volunteers will be surprised at the growth of their plantings over the last two weeks. They'll have to transplant the beans, separate the herbs, and we'll be talking about insect pests in the greenhouse. We've decided to add a second row for the hungry because our volunteers are increasing each week. It won't be too much longer before we'll be outdoors!

In the meantime, I've got the heater going and we're in for a morning of rain.
It feels like it's been a mighty long winter.

Wow; what a terrific painting. I love the way the trees are perfectly sized and retreat into the distance; the colors in the sky and water are superb and oh me, just the whole composition -- it's a winter winner Lin!!!

What a busy day you had. I'm glad it was doing spring like things. New growth, the real harbinger of spring!
