Wishing for Snow
The house sleeps. The sun too is slowly rising, but even the kitties haven't begun their insistent scrambling on the porch that lets us know they want to be fed. The bit of light across the horizon shows grey clouds. Though we're only expecting a bit of flurries late tonight and no accumulation, by this time of the year when it's cold outside and the trees are bare, when the heater hums constantly and I yearn for a fire in the fireplace, my thoughts turn to snow.
I love painting snow ... and because I tend to paint snow day after day after day, I don't want to get started too early - or I'll have nothing different to post! LOLOL But I suppose since it is already December, I can play a bit with the white stuff .... lol
I'm also working toward a change in my 'typical' palette. I tend toward the warm side of things and I'd like to change a bit of that here and there as well. I've begun using a few different colors and giving those a bit more dominance ... so we'll see how all that turns out.
We've a few chores to complete today, but the weekend should be restive ... hope yours is too!
