Winter arrived

     We had over a foot of snow yesterday.  The wind was blowing and the snow wet and heavy.  Lots of trees have come down, so many people are without power.  We lucked out and didn’t lose electricity, but close neighbors have been without for a full day and counting.  They finally plowed our road so it looks like we’ll be able to get out of here!  These kind of storms are exciting, even though they cause a lot of trouble.

I finished the above painting this morning.  I love those long, nearly horizontal shadows on untrodden snow and the blue-purple hues of the winter landscape.
