Ice Crystals in the Sunshine

It was so beautiful outside I forgot it was cold and kept snapping photos of ice crystals on pine needles and shimmering branches in the sunlight. Extraordinary contrast and color was the payoff.

Last night branches were cracking and I kept hoping nothing would crash down on my house. Whew! No damage...only fantastic sights to see.

 And there was more!! I loved the lines and the close ups of ice


crystals in the sunshine.

Wishing for Spring, Dreaming of Roses

When you're a painter, you create your own world. With some snow still hanging around and talk of ice on the roads I'd rather think of spring and red roses. Here's what I worked on yesterday and today:
