Snow

Probably the final version of this painting with snow flakes added. Mom says it's cute. Hmm. I think it was less cute without the snow flakes. Not that crazy about painting on canvas board so may order some stretchers and canvas. Grr as I have a fresh roll of canvas in my storage unit along with various sized stretchers.

I have never been a fan of snow paintings as they leave me..well cold. But I saw a painting of an Elk in snow up here done by someones mother that has passed away that I love.. she put a warm yellow golden sky color in but not to over the top with it and it is just so lovely. It changed a very cold to look at painting into a very inviting to look at painting. You have done that here too. the sky and the road have warmed up a very chilly scene and made it inviting. I like the snow coming down as it makes this different & unique. I think you are feeling the cold but are warming things up when painting these. Well done Suki. I Love this and the ones above.

Oh I forgot to mention about the canvas boards. I dont like them either. they tend to warp with time too. But some use masonite on purpose to paint on so think of it as masonite. lol

I like how this painting flows. The snowflakes are fine, but make me cold(er) than I already am! LOL
Yours looks more whimsical now.

Thanks for the comments hb. Yes, maybe the action of snowing gives life to a static scene. Interesting idea.

Cris, I think this board is already warping. Well, it's just practice.

whimsical. Interesting word Lynn. Thanks.
