Blue Sky Blizzard

Painting white on white at the peak of the blue sky blizzard would not have been very interesting. This view of the shagbark hickory in the front yard was at the tail end of the drifitng snow. The wind chill was still significant but the visibility was way better than the zero in whiteouts that had dominated the morning hours.

Notice that I used one of my handy-dandy supporting inventions to hold the canvas from the back. It allows me to paint all of the sides of the painting without getting paint on my hands. These little contraptions worked really well.
