A Dusting of Snow

Acrylic 8x8


I know we are finally into the swing of Spring but it really isn't unheard of for us in the frozen North to have snow at this time of year, hence todays painting. But today has been bright and sunny though the cold wind reminds us not to 'cast our cloot till May be oot'. I had hoped that tomorrow I would have been at Ayr too scream on Tonto (aka Silver By Nature) to go one better than his grand dam Dalkey Sound in the Scottish Grand National. Alas the God's had other plans and an injury last weekend put paid to the dream.....for this year. Next year he'll be nine years old, stronger and at an age where horses come of age....for Geoff and team Russell dream on :))

I could have used a dusting of snow today. In the high 80's and loaded with nasty pollen from the trees. Hoping spring returns, hate to see summer weather here so soon.

Lovely subdued tones in this one, Elizabeth.........Are you having impacts from that volcano where you are?

Elizabeth, I adore this painting. I'm a believer that snow paintings are good to look at year round, for their sheer beauty! And I like your landscapes so much - as much as your animal paintings - you are truly talented!

Pollen can be nasty for people with breathing problems hope it clears soon.

Glad you enjoyed it Lynda...can't say I've noticed any changes since Icelands vocano started hiccuping...has affected flights though.

Thanks for the lovely compliment Kelly it's much appreciated :)
