Late Spring Snowfall

This was one of the last snowfalls of the season...so far.  The grass, green and celebrating the spring melt against the softened snowy landscape.

The Blizzard

This was a painting I did in early March.  I had not gotten around to photographing it until a couple of days ago.  As always I am drawn to the softness of these kinds of scenes.  This scene is similar to "Across the Fields" that I did a few years ago.  It is in front of my house and I see this scene a lot when it is snowing and I am always drawn to it.  I wanted to incorporate the house this time and the "side roll" irrigation line into this composition.  The side roll is a wonderful indicator of the contour of the land between my place and the neighbors house.
