My Grand daughter came running in the front door this morning saying, “Grandma! It’s SNOWING! It’s SNOWING!” No matter how tired I am of snow by the end of winter I always love the first day of snow. The quiet, like the snow is insulating the sounds of the earth, is the first thing that I notice. I guess that is why I don’t mind living in a part of the world that the seasons change with such magnitude.
This painting is another gouache resist and my favorite so far. The subject material lent itself to the technique better than the ones I’d chosen previously. It also took me the longest to fill in all the spaces between the branches with the qouache.
