Since we were unable to get to church yesterday morning, I decided to indulge in a little of what our priest calls Northwest Pantheism and took a walk with my cameras to try to capture the beauty of this winter wonderland. Unfortunately the batteries in my digital died fairly early on, so I only managed to get a few photos with it, and you can see them here on my Flickr account. (I also took my Diana+ with me loaded with some black and white film, but I'll have to wait until I can get it developed to see what I captured with it.)
Luckily I had some art supplies (paint and small canvases) here at home since I haven't been able to drive to my studio. I've painted a couple of small pieces, and I managed to pick up some larger canvases between snowfalls the other day so I can continue to paint here. The painting at the top of the post I painted after the first snowfall last Saturday. I was entranced by the colors and texture of the snow and dry grasses and tree trunks. I plan to do some larger versions along this them too.
The painting below I completed on the heels of River Walk, and you can see that they share a common inspiration.
