Fruit Trees under Snow 2


7"X5" Mixed media on paper



I did several things here that I don't usually do. I combined watercolour and acrylic ink, using the white acrylic ink for the snow on the trees. I used a hairdryer to speed drying between washes, and I used salt for the snow effect. I have actually painted this image before, in oils, back in January or February of 2008.

This is my 366th day, the year is up. I don't know where I will go from here. I might take tomorrow off, just as a symbolic gesture of independence. Then again, I may not.
