Nothing has been "normal" since it started snowing in mid-January.
The intense weather has been very challenging
and rather disconcerting at times,
so it's been hard to settle down enough to paint.
Today I finally got a chance to try an idea
I've been thinking about
for my Expressive Painting classes.
The idea is to choose a mood or feeling
and create a painting (from photos)
gearing every stroke toward expressing that feeling.
16 x 20 oil
I wanted to express that glorious
"hot summer day at the beach" feeling.
After looking at all this snow
I needed to get some color in my life.
And boy, did that feel good!
I can't complain.
While I've been warm and comfy inside,
my husband has been doing this.
Instead of a Snowbird,
I'm afraid he's become a Snowblower.
