sunrise before snow

10x12 pastel on BFK
I painted this yesterday, at sunrise, before it began to snow again. The pink of sunrise permeated the air and the snow on the lake's ice.  Winter's colors truly are magnificent.
I must admit I am doing less thinking and more trusting of the painting. It knows and I am trusting it more.

Hi Loriann, i mean B.

I like it all, but I especially like being able to see the hillside through the trees and the great colors.

Well, that's it for a while. I'll be watching but not writing anything for a while.

Your lefty painting buddy says bye for a while.
