Snowy Scenes

I am still trying most days to get out and paint the snow and ice somewhere locally, since it doesn't seem to be leaving us any time soon. Yes, there is a little less of the snow from the warmth of the sun, but then it just refreezes as ice.

This first one was painted down at the West Islip Marina. The day I was there it was so windy that the  snow on the ground was blowing like it was just falling...but sideways. I liked the lonely bench looking out at the mostly frozen Great South Bay.

When I don't want to travel far I just drive about 5 minutes to a park down the street in Sayville and look for a new view from the parking lot. I haven't braved it and ventured out of my car to paint any of these.

If you have had snow where you live I hope you are enjoying it like me.

    1. Thanks. It gives me an excuse for not staying home and cleaning. lol

  2. I'd enjoy it more if my sidewalk was shoveled. I can't manage it as the bottom layer is ice stuck to the sidewalk. Of course, M just left it that way when he was home last time. So it gets worse and worse as more snow falls. Yeesh! But your paintings provide a beautiful view of it and I love them!

  3. Sherry, thanks. Sorry you have ice and can't clear the sidewalk. Under most of our snow is a thick layer of ice that will probably be here until June. lol We have more snow in the forecast for tomorrow.
