From Portrait to Figure-and LOTS of Snow!





 Decided to take a break from portraits and do a figure painting yesterday.

Oil on linen / 12x16




A closer look....
It began snowing as I was painting - just a delicate beautiful snowfall. But the storm continued throughout the night and when we awoke this morning we were greeted by a winter wonderland!


Early morning view from the front walkway.



My husband and the snowblower - both getting a real workout!  


Afternoon delight in Reno, Nevada!
