"First Snow"

This is a painting I did of my Aunt Mary's deck.  She lives in Minnesota and still has snow on her deck.     The title comes from the fact that this is my first attempt at painting snow.  One of my new year art resolutions was to paint snow... so here it is!!!  I learned a lot from this painting.  I found it interesting how much color is in snow!  Size is 18 x 24  oil on canvas.

Life is just a bowl of cherries?

Ah if only it were that simple.... I have been traveling and am now back at home settled into my studio once again..
This is a small painting I did for a challenge in one of the on line art forums I belong to.
I just may have to hang this in my new kitchen!
The reference photo was courtesy of Wet Canvas and I enjoyed painting it very much.  I have done very few small paintings so this was a good exercise for me.
