Snowly Moley

 I was right!! At the end of my last post I stated that because I was talking about spring that snow would come again.. Not only was I right about it but for being smug we have had  three different snow storms since then. One storm was nice enough to deliver almost a foot of snow. Free.

  There are a few more snow paintings to share here and this one is from before my recent advance in photographing my work. Some subtlety is lost. It is a 24x30 titled "Blizzard Road Bristol Dam" and was painted a couple months ago when we received the first installment of our three foot plus base of snow...

Did you know that the original spelling of snow when translated was spelled "S-N-F-O-W..?
 Then, my ancestors right here in the North East, New Englanders ... Changed it to S-N-O-W...
 Because they were tired of the F in Snow..........

 OK,  read that last sentence out loud.

  I wrote that.. thanks for stopping by.

It will be a great pity when the snow stops falling in Maine because you'll stop making these striking images. Although we'll then get your spring and summer stuff and at my age it never takes long for next winter to arrive. Love it.

As my neighbor in Phoenix would say "You're a regular Gary Steinfelt!" No, she wasn't a viewer of "Seinfeld". Said she didn't understand his humor. But we understand yours, Dan. Very funny. Nice painting too. Please no more comments about winter being over. We still have the rest of April and May and June and...
See you at PAPME soon.
