I'm staying at my daughter and son-in-law's home this week, as she's having a baby. Exciting time for us as we wait patiently for little Stellan to decide to join the world. I think today is the day! Yesterday, as I was babysitting the dogs, cleaning and trying to help before she returns home with their son, I was able to do a small plein air painting for the first time in quite awhile. It was 70 degrees and perfectly beautiful outside. The sun was steady, spilling shadows on the rock, trees and ground in back of their house. Well, over night it snowed and today the trees are laden with white and there must be three inches on the ground. I actually might just try the same rock in the snow!
