A Delicate Beginning to Winter Weather

Snug in the studio with a few recent acquaintances as the snow gently fell outside.

Less than an inch - really just a dusting.

  1. It looks so beautiful, but I'm glad you have it, Susan! :) It's still sunny, though cool here, so I'm going to put aside the brushes, and go for a romp with the Big Guy! I LOVE your photo of you with all the portraits!!!

    1. Thanks, Judy - this photo surprised me. I wasn't aware that many of the portraits are so large! I was once told in a workshop never to paint a portrait larger than life size. Oh, well!

  3. I love the photo of you and your work. Great idea! That would make a great painting in itself!
    I am so glad you got some snow.
    We in south coast of Massachusetts just missed snow by only a few miles.
    I am wondering if I am the only one upset!
    Take care and enjoy the beautiful, breathtaking, snow!

    1. The snow is mostly gone - except for above 6000 feet on the mountains. The skiers are happy this season for the early snow. We have warmed up considerably now and I am back to enjoying the crisp autumn weather.

    1. The scale surprised me. Not sure if that is good or not good! :)

  6. This is a fabulous photo with your paintings grouped around you. It shows so clearly how great you are at painting the LIGHT!
    Snowy hillside with a great snow filled sky actually made me nostalgic for the snow. Lovely image.

  8. Brrrrrrrrrrr!! Oui au chaud à l'atelier, je resterais aussi ! Le spectacle peut être magnifique mais en ce qui me concerne je n'aime pas vraiment la neige!

    Je suis heureuse de voir que vous n'êtes pas seule! Vous êtes bien entourée... Vous avez réalisé de si merveilleux portraits. Une grande présence.
    Merci pour le partage...

    Gros bisous.

    1. I am trying to figure out a way to store my completed works. I recently spent hours searching for a painting that someone wanted to buy after seeing it on my website. I need a new system!

  10. Amazing photograph Susan of you and your work. You are so talented at capturing a persons character. Such a gift :)

  11. Do you talk to these people?
    I do to mine. One man on my wall looks very disapproving at me, at my laziness and lack of creativity.
    I am glad this is not your story.
    Great portraits. Lady in glasses is so beautiful.
