Snow Day part deux

"Chimney & icicles, Moncton NB" acrylic on canvas, 8" x 8" SOLD

We did get snowed out of going to Red Deer, so no opening nite for "Due South". Not last nite, anyhow. Fortunately it WILL be rescheduled, and there will be visiting and food...when it's safe to venture out again. In the meantime, I quite enjoying being snowed in. The studio is cozy, and it gives me time to paint and putter.

Today's painting continues in the snowy East coast vein. When staying in Moncton NB for a couple of weeks, I had a lot of time to walk around with Gershwin and my camera. There was so much snow in 2007. Some of the drifts were up to my waist, and good luck crossing the street! If you could climb over the drift...you were good to go. One thing I noticed that the East gets that we don't seem to here as much in AB, is icicles. Massive, long icicles, and at times they get so bad that some houses have "watch for falling ice" signs posted on them! As I'm looking from my studio into my front yard, the sidewalk is buried under fluffy snow AGAIN. I don't mind. It's a great day for sipping tea, wearing slippers, and painting wintery scenes.

Hope you are warm, cozy and safe...wherever you are today!
