winter scenes



A couple of little winter scenes done before I went to Chincoteague last weekend. As usually happens, since I've been back, Tuesday, I have been too busy catching up to paint!
It was pretty cold in Chincoteague, and Peter and I surf-fished for striped bass nonetheless. We didn't get any, but on Sunday I got a few pictures of the Saltwater Cowboys as they rode their ponies on the beach. This wasn't one of their pony roundups; they were just out for a rare pleasure ride, as one cowboy told me. I'll do a post on them soon.

I found out--too late!--that my birthday, 12/12, is also the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe. I took this picture of her in Santa Fe in October and have been wanting to paint it.

Molto belli i tuoi paesaggi, cara Laura, e anche l'immagine della Vergine di Guadalupe. Credo che ne uscirà un bellissimo acquerello. Ciao e buon fine settimana. Luigi.

Happy belated birthday! This would make a great painting for you to do to commemorate your birthday - even if it has to be a bit late :) And these little winter scenes are wonderful - as are the stories of the Saltwater Cowboys (I may have to plan a vacation there sometime in the future).

I love these winter scenes and the little chickadee. I read your blog often but I think this may be my first comment. Happy Belated Birthday.

Next year your Bday will be 12/12/12! How special! The snow scenes are enchanting. I love the unique shape of the composition. So pretty!
