Silence is Golden

I do not fancy driving in or shoveling snow but I sure love
the scenery it makes. I spent the week making some of my
snowscene watercolors into winter cards.

I love cold weather and being out in a forest covered with snow.

I was even painting these winter forests back in June already.
The quote is from Quiet Fire Design.

I am sharing this with Illustration Friday, Paint Party Friday

Have a good weekend....I am off to a watercolor workshop.

Oh how I love watercolor! And I really love your watercolors, Cynnie! The middle one is my favorite of the three...those Quietfire sentiments fit so well. Tomorrow, I'm going to wander around in our just-recently-snowy landscape to see if I can find something to photograph. I can't paint!

Evelyn S. said...

I'm back...because I changed my mind about "favorite." The first one has all those wonderful colors...fabulous detail...AND glistening snow! :-)
