For the past month or more, every Wednesday we have had a heavy snowstorm. Usually about 15 to 20 cm. This time I could see it moving across the lake. It wasn’t snowing near my house, just in the distance. It was fascinating.
The downside of Wednesday snowstorms is that I have had to cancel two painting classes. I wasn’t scheduled to teach today, so that was good. I didn’t have to cancel what I wasn’t doing. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for next week. Please, no snow on Wednesday!
The upside of so much snow is the pleasure of working in my studio, feeling protected by nature. My studio is on the lower floor, with windows overlooking the lake. I wouldn’t say I am inspired by the view, just enveloped by its presence. There is an openness to the expansiveness outside my window that seems to be working its way into my paintings. I certainly cannot complain, about that, or about the snow.
