To me this is the first sign of spring.  Here we are a few days into spring and we are having snow.  Guess you might be able to see a scene of these flowers poke there heads out of the snow.  Hurry on Spring.

Little Calumet River

watercolor 
14" x 21"
Landscape

With the last snow fall that we had, I went out and took a few photos.  This is a local river and I was able to catch it at sunset.  Ok...I added the sunset.  lol.  Tomorrow is spring and it is sooooooooo cold here in Indiana.  The wind chill makes it even colder.  Last year at this time it was 80 degrees.  This is the coldest that we have had it in 20 years.  go figure.  Stay warm.

Snow Day

watercolor
14" x 16"
landscape

This was the what I saw when I looked out my sunroom sliding door the other day.  We had about 8" of snow and it was soooooooo pretty.  That was probably more than what we got all winter season so far.  Believe it or not, I had to cancel my first class of this semester.  It worked out ok.... I was able to paint this painting.  I also made 2 necklaces and 2 bracelets.  

This is all negatively painted (in a positive way)..  No white paint was used nor was there any masking fluid.  Enjoy, stay warm and hurry up spring.

Into the Light...

watercolor
7" x 11"
landscape

It was a lovely day in Indiana today.  On the way to dinner the sun was so bright as it was beginning to set.  This made for some lovely shadows.  Since I always carry a camera in my purse I was able to get some good photos to use for reference for future paintings. 

Spring is just around the corner...soon I will be painting flowers :)  and planting them, too.
