Frozen watercolors and plenty of snow!

13 inches of snow,  for us that was amazing 

Frozen watercolors 
Hi, last week we had 13 inches of snow here on the Eastern Shore of Va. Living on one of the back roads is pretty but can be very icy. We were snowed in for 3 days. I froze  a few washes, just do your washes then quickly get them outside in 20 degree weather.  Weigh them down so they don't  blow away. Wait overnight and look sometimes there are ice crystals on the paper.  Bring it in gently and let dry completely.  It is so amazing.  Of course then I have to decide what to do with the background.

I have been painting a commission, can't share it with  you . But I am painting, Sadie, our Labrador ate one of my newest brushes,luckily just the handle so I duck taped it back on. Ha ha....

Wishing each of you a Blessed  and Happy New Year, my love to you, Diana
