Cutsy and Cold

Yesterday was a cold day here. I had to go out to pick up a painting from a gallery and took along my Stillman & Birn Alpha Sketchbook. I figured I could find something to sketch in route. I didn't plan on being out too long in the car, so it needed to be something I could sketch fairly quickly. I found this garden with two snowmen...a bit cutsy and cute, but I decided to do it anyway. Doing shadows on snow is not easy. lol


  1. This is gorgeous Joan! Great to see you making the most of what must be very difficult weather to get around in.

  2. Love the painting with the snowmen! Good for you Joan! So much fun picturing you sketching in your car! Keep them coming!

  3. I love cute and this is perfect, Joan.

  4. Thanks, Cris!

    Wendy, thank you. I will paint anything. lol

    Michael, thanks. Someday I'll have to use the self timer and take a selfie of myself painting in the car. The other day I had on my hat and scarf and had a blanket with me just in case.

    Sherry, you are sweet!

  5. Really cute Joan. Hope you are managing to keep warm over there.
