I’m impressed with artists who post a painting a day on their blogs. Let’s see how taking a photo a day goes for me. And if they are any good, I’ll post them

It was a fat snow fall yesterday. Snowballs raining from the sky. Early this morning outside my studio window it lingered briefly, heavy on the pines.

Enjoy the journey.
