Early December

This small oil sketch was done this afternoon from my back deck. It was below freezing but with the sun shining it was warm enough for Phil and I to sit on our back steps and drink our tea after lunch. I figured if it is warm enough to sit and drink tea it surely is warm enough to do a small painting. Unfortunately, the clouds started to roll in from the east and south and just as I was ready to start painting, the clouds covered the sun and I lost all the beautiful blue shadows on the snow. I persevered even though it got very cold without the sunshine and was pretty happy with this little piece.
