It's been snowing here in Washington. That's not unusual for points East of the Cascades, maybe, but here by the Puget Sound we are in a little bit of shock. Usually we are well into spring by now. 
This was the view from my kitchen window early this morning...pretty, huh?

Anyway it's a good day to stay inside and paint. I finished my second barn painting a little while ago.

Back to the studio.

We’ve also got very pretty snow here today. I gather most of the East doesn’t have it, but we do.

Thanks, kosh. (Crazy weather almost everywhere, it seems like.)

We have a sad little snow.  it's slushy and shitty looking and the dogs aren't interested in it in the slightest.

However this is a beautiful painting. Love the texture.  You can almost hear the crunch.

Here it turned to ice tonight. I had errands to run but I live up a 300’ hill. We have one car at home because alternators went on the other two, while I was driving, on consecutive days. I don’t dare risk the hill.

You're on to something Rosi. The barns are peaceful.

Snow on the sand this a.m at the mouth of the river. Watching it last night was exciting. Quite different. The pair of Bald Eagles who roost nearby hovered overhead. Scenic.

alsoknownas, I'm enjoying painting these. I hope to do a couple more. 

Describing your day, you've painted quite a nice image in words.

That barn is something else!  Great job.
