Snow in July???



watercolor 7 x 31


I found this neat frame at the hobby/craft store that was on sale. Somehow it followed me home. I knew I would have to cut a special mat for it. But, I didn't check to see what size the painting would have to be. Well, it needed to be 31" and wc paper is 22 x 30. I looked through my wc papers and found some watercolor board that was 40." The frame opening is 12 x 36. I got lucky on that one. It is good to plan ahead. lol. I right away cut 2 mats and went back to the store to get another frame. It is such a strange size that maybe someone might find that attractive. It would look good over a fireplace. And then, if the fireplace caught on fire...the snow would melt and put out the fire. :)
I think the most accomplishing thing about this painting was my getting it onto this blog and then presenting the two shots and then the combined shot of the painting.
Enjoy!!

Hi Kathy, there is some diabolic in my blog. I can't send comments from my post and there are some comments, three, which I could read them in yahoo but not in my blog. I don't know what is happening. I hope see this one into your blog. Thanks for your comment about my oil painting and watercolor,but in reality they are much better than you are telling me. MPDR.
I'll go sooner to see your snow landscape hanging on your dinning room or from your buyer. You make watercolors better than I, yet....MPDR.

Hi Julian, I did get your comment on my blog. No problem. I do not know why you are having problems or how to fix them.
You know I love your work very much. Go a head, tell me your paintings are better than mine. lol
It would be nice to have you come see the painting in my dinning room and have dinner too. I promise I would not try to poison you, but if I did, then your paintings would be worth more. MPDR

Thanks for your comments Jyothisethu.
Thanks Meera. I am glad that you like the shadows and trees.
I did a second one, too, of a snow scene in this same long format. Watch for it.
