Snow Country Pastel Painting

'Snow Country' 8x10 pastel
It's cold and windy with snow on the ground here in Georgia. The perfect day to pack for my caribbean cruise!! My husband and I usually take a get away cruise in the winter since that is his slow time at work. Summers are too busy for him to take any time off. We have visited cold and wintry places but we really enjoy the total relaxation of a cruise. If you follow my blog than you know that I still paint every day on my cruise. I have perfected the 'lounge chair' plein air set-up. This year I want to do some plein air painting on the islands as well. Got to get packing!

Karen, you do the best winter scenes! I just love them. The colors in the snow are beautiful! :)

Thanks Angela. We really didn't get enough snow for me to get any good pictures to paint from so I am a bit disappointed!

I remember when I first started reading your blog, I think you had just gotten back from one of your cruises and you showed pics of you painting the 5x7's on the ship. I hope you have an awesome time on your cruise. that is something I have never done but hope to in the future-to someplace warm and tropical! Except that I get seasick and would have to remedy that one!

Can't wait to see your cruise paintings and paintings of the Islands:)
