Merry Christmas Rob!.... Three beautiful winter "snowflakes"... all gems by any standard!!!

For Rob:

How uplifting... is the pure white snow!
If you head outdoors with gear in tow.
Winter has wonder and warmth to share,
If only you take the courage to paint...
"Out there"!

Happy painting in 2010 and good luck with your Tuscan painting adventure.
Cheers!
Bruce

The snow paintings are enchanting--it is clear that you relish the change in landscape--and I agree with rahina q.h. in that it IS lovely to hear that adults delight in snow, too.
Happy New Year, Rob!

sledging with the kids is fun too,

The first of these is my fave. I like the atmospheric feeling of the moisture laden, sunlit haze.
