Snow Days In and Out of the Studio

There's something so seductively sensuous about
sparkling, snow slathered, surfaces!

After a short, early Saturday walk in the woods,
it was a good weekend to get caught up on
the framing of some sold tree paintings.

The title and quote for each piece was
laminated to the foam core backing, including
the number in the series and date of creation.

For many years now, I have been making
personalized thank you cards to
accompany each of my sold original paintings.
Appreciative collectors frequently tell
me it is a really nice touch.

Today I had another idea and
attached a clear acetate pocket to the back. 
When the hand written card is done being displayed,
it has a safe place where it is stored,
always with the painting.

The snow was so heavy here,
it bent the Cedars down across
this sand road preventing passage
except to 4-wheelers who didn't
mind getting their vehicles scratched up. 

I hope you had a good weekend and are enjoying
winter in your neck of the woods
as much as I am in mine.

As Always,
Best Wishes and Thanks for Reading,
