This is my 300th post! Yeah! Do I sound like I’m breaking my arm patting myself on the back? I’m really pleased and happy that I have made so many new friends and learned so much during the last two years of blogging. Thank you….
We have been having a warm and wet winter in Indiana. Snow is due today along with colder weather. I have been thinking about the flow of seasons and about winter. In the mid-1980′s I painted one of my best paintings ever. I copied a photo of a lynx in deep snow and was so proud of the beautiful pink, lavender and cerulean blue highlights I achieved. They brought the snow to life. I decided to try to capture some of this winter beauty with my current abstract painting style. This was a challenge and working with white watercolor is a difficult. It looks so flat! But I learned alot and tried something new and so all’s well that ends well.
I did like the sense of snow being blown by the wind in this abstract world. Feels very cold.
