Happy New Years to you all! Yesterday was sunny and the snow was glorious. The shadows were so blue.SnowJan12008 I have always loved to paint snow with watercolours because you don't use any white paint. You just paint the shadows and the paper turns into snow. In 1983 after several years of painting white flowers on white paper I switched to painting white snow on white paper. Lately my paintings have been saturated with colour but the capturing of white on white with no white paint still intrigues me. Today we are having another blizzard and the day is grey- particularly depressing since I've spent the day dismantling all the lovely Christmas decorations. I guess the holiday is truly over. I did keep a bunch of little angels and creatures out in the studio. I just might paint them
