There was lots of snow on Monday. Two large moose wandered through, probably bucks, more skiddish than most. I resorted to taking a photo in order to draw this one walking.

No snow today. There were short instances of sunshine showing through above dark clouds. It looked like an Ansel Adam's photograph, but I didn't get my camera in time. After the sun was gone,I painted this pine tree, using gouache for the white. This is the best one of the two.

I love the soft touch you used to paint the moose and everything else beyond the falling snow. I really get a sense of the weather, and the quiet that a snowfall brings.

Thank you Hillary. I'm glad the sense of weather came through to you.... I was enjoying the view outside that day. Not so much today... rain and the snow is mush.
