10 am Sunday Morning

I’ll soon be there with snow,
I’ll wash my hair with snow,
And with a spade of snow,
I’ll build a man that’s made of snow,
I’d love to stay up with you but I recommend a little shuteye
Go to sleep,
And dream…
Of snow.
Snow, from White Christmas, by Rosemary Clooney.

We had decent snow overnight. Mingus remains under cloud cover. But our streets are dry and the snow is making a quick retreat. We may get lucky though, and have more snow tonight. Fingers crossed it will start early enough to be viewed.

2 pm, Sunday Afternoon.

Making more starts. Honestly, no idea where this will all go. But that is part of the fun, isn’t it? Claro, Que si! Yes, but of course!

Sketchy starts.
Sketchy starts.

I painted over my HUGE canvas. And I will paint over it again. My effort was not successful. Haha. I took the palette knife and played at the end, knowing it was a loss. The colors are off. I need to make a run to Micheals.

I decided that the colors I had on it before were just to, harsh. I want something more restful. So I will keep trying. Still inspired by Hiroshi Matsumoto‘s abstract landscapes.

The other idea I have long had is to do something like van Gogh’s Almond Blossoms. But there too, it is bold, strong color. I love it. But maybe one of the softer versions would work. Suzette Rothlisberger gifted me with a tube of Thalo Turquoise. Thank you, Suzette! I also have a tube of Turquoise light. Thinking on it.

Whoa, someone turned the lights down! Clouds are moving in and Mingus has disappeared again. Yay!

Happy last week of January to you! Can you believe it???

How did it get so late so soon.
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December before it’s June.
My goodness, how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?

    Ha ha – It is funny – you cheer when it snow and I complain. Maybe because you know yours will disappear soon and I figure mine will stay for days. I am enjoying your WIP’s and your prep work for the upcoming 30 Day Creative. – so looking forward to seeing what everyone does.

      Haha, Exactly Val. I know it will not last long. And we get it so rarely.
      Have no doubt, growing up in Colorado, I complained plenty! It was a 1.5-mile walk to the high school. And the school is next to a lake.
      Yeah buddy, it could get very cold!!
      I am getting excited as well Val! You are all so amazing!!
      Happy prepping! 🙂
