Snow at last!

We woke up this morning to a fresh coat of snow 15cm or so. It reminded me of a line from a poem I wrote many years ago:

Winter steps into the bed of seasons once again
With fresh white sheets
And gray blankets.

This little gem went out to one of my newsletter subscribers (Susan Land). Susan won this small painting on Christmas Eve and I will have it shipped to her as soon as I can get my snow blower to work today.

No Snow Yet! Plein air at Scotsdale Farm 8”x10”

No Snow Yet! Plein air at Scotsdale Farm 8”x10”

I did this one today at Scotsdale Farm while sitting in my car. Sorry for the shadows on top and the glare in the trees. I am going to set it aside and look at it again in a few days to see if it is any good. So far I like the general feel. It does capture what the day was like out there. What do you think?
