A few days ago it was 70 degrees but I woke up to this scene very early this morning. The kids were excited to have another snow day. My family back home in Minnesota would scoff; they just received 17 inches of snow. Our 3 or 4 inches wouldn't even slow them down.
My friend Carolina encouraged me to repost my February sketchbook page. I will save the recommended back story for the next painting, but here is the new (hopefully improved) photo of my sketchbook.
I would have previously rejected this photo because of the shadows, but it is starting to grow on me.
I painted the scenes from memory because all the snow was gone by the time I got around to finishing the sketch. But then this morning....

I can't resist posting one more picture. The background is too busy for me but it is the best photo for showing what the page really looks like.
