Snow, snow, snow

It has snowed and now the sun is shining.  The temperature is trying to get to 40 degrees.  The world is definitely looking brighter.  I am still working on both paintings I showed yesterday.  Colors are a little bright.  Sunrises are bright, hard to know what to tone down.  I am now at that place my husband tells people "the last ten percent of the painting that takes 90% of the time".  All artists know what I am talking about. 

I am also reading "The Art Spirit"  by Robert Henri.  Bob Rohm recommends it.  It is beautiful reading.  Robert Henri lived until 1929, taught at the Art Students League in NY and was part of the Ashcan School.  His work is very "now".

Hope to show more complete pictures tomorrow.
