Cold Beauty


This pastel is a combination winter and canal reflection with ice forming and flowing on the water surface.  Unlike Marc Hanson, who loves to work in freezing temperatures,  I don't.  But early this morning I went out to take pictures for something to paint.  My camera was sluggish, and my hands shaky, and my fingers stinging with oncoming numbness.  Most of the pictures I discarded.  This image captures what I wanted to say.

Bob, You captured a beautiful feeling of a frozen body of water. Is this your canal?

Loriann, Thank you for your comment. This is "my" canal.
