Painted this on card with dimpled surface a friend gave me.  A couple of happy accidents with the sky/clouds turned out well and pleased me.

Love the warm colors under the very pretty sky - and all of it in contrast with the snow...

Bill,

This is lovely.  My husband is a Vermonter.  The thing that impressed me the most about Vermont was all the dairy farms.  While picturesque, they have the distinct smell of manure!

Wow, Bill! I really like this a lot. Great tonal values. I think you may have your 2018 Christmas card here.

This is just excellent, Bill! I like using rough paper for landscape work. And I agree with Susan - your holiday card is done!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Beautifully painted Bill. Wonderful scene... I actually find the snow attractive at this moment in 104F temperature! I did say attractive....from a distance, still don't like snow enough to want to be in it!  :cold:      :2funny:
