Snow Day!

The first real day of snow is here! This fall, I have been attempting small paintings of snow on trees and leaves etc..  but they were not working. All the snow looked like drywall spackle on the foliage rather than the soft fluffy peaks that are forming now. Obviously I need to get outside and take some photos and really look at how the snow affects the branches underneath and what happens to the color in different times of day. Relying on my Canadian childhood experiences is obviously not enough. I am going to have to bundle up and really do some observation. How many words do the Inuit have for snow? I have a lot to learn!
