Snow in April
"Snow in April", 6 x 6 inches, oil on board, $ 60.00
Woke up this morning to a snow scene. Just a few days ago, we enjoyed temperatures in the upper 70's. I almost raked the leaves off my strawberry patch. Glad I didn't.
My daughter, Amy suggested I paint from today's snow, so I looked out the studio window and thought, gee really? But then, I looked out the clerestory window and got inspired to paint this little piece. If Amy hadn't suggested this, I would not have thought to capture today's unusual weather.
I hear my poor mother trying to explain to Cooper that he can't jump on her lap for a back rub because she has a sore knee. I can just imagine the tipped head and sad puppy-dog eyes he's giving her. When Cooper wants a back-rub, he jumps on your lap and sits with his back facing you. My mom has a studio apartment in our home and he spends most of the day in her cozy apartment watching TV with her.
