Winter Storm

Nature is also fun to sketch. Today we got walloped by a winter storm. Schools were closed at 5:30 a.m., but no snow started falling until about 10. A few flurries floated lazily to the ground before it began in earnest. At 4 p.m., I can now see why the schools were closed. White blinding snow keeps falling with no end in sight. I sketched this tree outside my window, everywhere branches are covered in snow. Some of my bushes have so much white on them, they are hard to see. I used pen and watercolor and attempted spatter-painting with acrylics and an old toothbrush. Glad I can be inside!
