Happy December!

Winter in the Wallowas-gouache-5" x7"

Happy December!
I painted today. Nothing special really, just had an urge to paint something wintry. It is December after all and one of my favorite months! Though it's been quite cold in my neck of the woods we don't have any snow and to me it's just not December without snow. So I decided to paint myself some.
The scene I chose to paint is in Wallowa, Oregon. I visited there a few years ago in winter and it was magical. On this very cold, sunny morning the snow sparkled like a bazillion diamonds wherever the light hit in. The shadows were lovely shades of frosty blue and lavender. And the mountains.....ah, they were breathtaking! Wish I could visit right now, but I guess I'll just have to settle for memories and my little painting.
