Sledding in the Snow
watercolor 12x16" unframed
I'm fond of this image of two kids
playing with their sled in a snowstorm.
It was done from a pen and ink sketch
I'd done many years ago. I'd used the
image from a vintage photograph
made at the turn of the last century. I
added the snowstorm with a spray of
white watercolor paint which gives a
half-obscured, blizzardy day feeling.
The person who purchased the
painting said the figures reminded her
of relatives in Maine, and that meeting
me by chance just as I was bringing it
into the gallery was "meant to be." I
hope the family who gives this winter
scene a home feels the same.
