Winter Sky II watercolor on Fabriano (forgot to measure but it's about 14"x24") sold
Crop of Winter Sky IISo...because I was so frustrated with the whole wet in wet thing...I painted something else entirely. I have excellent problem solving skills!
I painted more of my trees. My framer lady, Audrey, was going through her inventory, doing a little early spring cleaning (REALLY early), and gave me a whole pile of precut mats. Lots of them. Big ones too. She is so very good to me!
I like this one...it's like looking out the window.
I've included a closeup shot...for those interested in getting a closer look.
Somehow these don't look like they are the same color. The second one is the most accurate.
As for the weather...well...Saturday morning it was -42C (which is the same in F oddly enough). Sunday morning it was -30C....and Monday morning it was +2C. What the hell?! It's been lovely all week, aside from the wind...right now it's +2C (about +36F or so). Absolute bliss. I have the windows open, letting some fresh air into the house to sweep out the cabin fever bugs.
What else...hhhmmm...Oh yeah! Next weekend I get to start teaching a beginning sketching class. 3 hours on Saturday afternoon for the next 4 Saturday's. I'm really looking forward to it. I like teaching. I was going to be a teacher when I grew up...but I changed my mind...about the growing up part. I also get to do 2 all day watercolor classes...one in March and 1 in April. Fun!
Drop me a line...it makes my day.
