Snow Day...

Really we haven't had anything resembling a snow day this winter, but this painting is from a photograph of a friend's beloved dog who succumbed to cancer this year. My friend Karen couldn't make it to paint tonight, but since I had already made the commitment to paint, it got me to the easel. Entering in the Daily Paintworks challenge for Man/Woman's Best Friend, as I try to catch back up on the challenges I missed while I was under the weather myself. Missing the snow a little, actually, so maybe the Groundhog will be right and we'll still have a chance at some snow this year. Having someone to share it with makes all the difference! Aloha!


  1. This is gorgeous Melle!! The light on the snow and the colours are superb!

  2. I love the way you have used the "light" in this... especially as the dog is no longer here. Very sensitive but with energy in the paint application.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It is more appreciated when I see what a good painter you are.
