Snow-scape of Rural Virginia

Rural Virginia – Snow Scene

approx 5” x 9” (12.7 x 22.9 cm)– oil on gessoed paper }
Matted painting: $175.00 + S&H

Have you ever notice how blue the sky is on a sunny winter day when there is snow on the ground? The deep blue of the sky is something I love on sunny winter day.

Over the holidays I watched many facebook feeds of friends who were posting photos of snowy landscapes, and I was jealous. I so wanted to have a snowy holiday season and to see Naomi frolic in the snow in her new snow-bibs we had gotten for her, just in case...

This week I finally accepted that the DC region may not get cold enough for snow this winter, so I dug into some photo archives and painted a snow scene from about three years ago. And I have to say this did satisfy my longing for snow...
