When we were finally all dug out from the snowstorm I headed over to the Bayard Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale to paint the snow. I wanted to capture the snow before it softened too much and fell off the trees. I figured I would be able to sit in the parking lot and paint a view from my car. This tree was right in front of me and I couldn't resist that wonderful speckled bark. This time I had to leave the white of the paper for the snow. lol I'm happy with this one.
