"Sunny Bunch" 11 x 14 oil
Unexpected four day weekend due to the blizzard of 2013. I was surprised to see all the Nemo references, had somehow missed that we name blizzards now, not leaving the honor only to tropical storms and hurricanes. We were fortunate, no big trees came down, house intact, though we did lose power on Friday night, and spent three cool days without. We shoveled out, scraped snow from the roof, kept the wood stoves going to keep the house tolerable. It was cold, and quiet, and we played games and read by oil lamps. Happy to have the power back. Didn't paint, but did a lot of drawing. "Sunny Bunch" is from a while back, but is certainly the weather I've been thinking about. Glad everyone is safe, and digging out. Thanks to the crews of tree guys, and electric guys... long, long days.
