Snow Along the Creek - First Day of Winter?

7" x 9"
Arches 140# CP

According to the calendar, today is the Winter Solstice - the shortest day and the longest night. And while I can only hope for the snow I love and paint my dream for a white Christmas, the temps today will reach mid 70s!!

It'll be most pleasant, of course, and compared to the wicked snow and rain storms throughout the US, we have been spared such extreme weather - a blessing to be sure.

So though this year Winter has sent us a day of summer on her Solstice, I'll welcome the season with the Winters I remember and paint them into my own celebration.

Have a happy weekend!

Oh, I who LOVE snow paintings, and especially yours, am bowled over by this one. If only we could have all that snow for one day for you to enjoy, for kids to play and slide in/on, and it didn't fall on the roads and freeze. I don't want much do I LOL.

An altogether perfectly beautiful winter scene Lin. They just keep getting better and better and I love everything about this one.

From rainy KY where it is already 60 at 10:00 a.m.
