Cold Feet!

I am calling this "Cold Feet", because they look like they are tip-toeing  on the snow to avoid the cold. I sympathize with that, almost always having cold feet myself. I thought of putting a bit of dry-brush dark here and there to suggest dry grass poking through the snow, but I'm not sure it would add anything to the painting.
Thank you again to Gary Jones for the photo!

I have also started another dried hydrangea. I must be fascinated with  their fragility and mutes beauty.

I am not sure where this one is going, but I am smiling as I work on it!

As always, your comments are so welcome!

  6. Cold Feet is a delightful painting, Kathryn, with the perfect title! I agree - dry brush poking through the snow is not needed. It is completely wonderful just the way it is. And I am intrigued by the unusual composition of the hydrangea painting - I love it and can see why you are smiling!

  15. Hello Kathryn:) You've done it again! So beautiful your cold feet geese. The colors are wonderful and they have a lovely attitude. Great art! Hydrangeas are so beautiful but difficult to paint I think. You paint them as you've never done something else:) How was the first ride on Bruno with his shining teeth?

  16. They do look as though they're tiptoeing and can't wait to get back to their (relatively warm perhaps) pond.
    I really like the understated colors and delicacy of touch in your work.
