It's been snowing like a bear here all day and it is supposed to continue through the night. I had a friend I mentor come this morning for a lesson, but she had to leave early before the roads got too treacherous. I was unable to shoot outside, so I didn't get any good in-progress shots of this painting. It was photographed in the studio tonight and even after some tweaking in Photoshop, appears slightly warmer than in real life.


I hope all of you in the NorthEast are weathering the storm and the rest of you are having a good day in your neighborhood!



As always, I really appreciate your comments and emails.
Thanks for stopping by!
