Ol' Man Winter is sneaking into northern New York and although we've had a couple of very small flurries already, there's been nothing substantial. No ground cover yet!
However, it has gotten me into "Winter Mode" and I've been tackling snow scenes at the easel, as of late. Though I'm not really a big fan of snow, I DO love to paint it!
And I DO really enjoy hiking on my snowshoes behind my home, taking in all the sights of the snow-laden trees, the birds flitting about and the cool blue snow shadows draped across the land. It looks like it'll be a while yet though, before we have enough of an accumulation for that.
These are some paintings I've done over the past couple of weeks, in anticipation of Ol' Man Winter's impending arrival.
