Snowmelt at Caratunk

Oil, 8" x 8"
I felt compelled to do at least one painting of snow before it's all gone so I headed out to Caratunk Audubon Preserve. I knew there was a lovely stream there that would make a good painting subject. I hadn't painted outside for several months so of course, something went wrong- I hiked through the woods only to find when I got there that my tripod was broken. It had broken before and I had superglued it together, but this time there was no repairing it.

I found a rock I could sit on with a reasonably good view of the stream and managed to get a half decent painting. It was a bit precarious- one careless move and my pochade box would have ended up in the stream. All's well that ends well, though. Almost makes me want more snow...

Looks to me like you've hit a sweet spot. I like all your snow paintings...and especially this one. Terrific design.
