Knowing how my readership loves the snow photos, I offer today's snow images.
The headline for this post borrows from the time honored newspaper method of adding a question mark if one is teasing the subject. The national news has picked my region, the Spokane area, for having the baddest weather in a nationwide series of snowstorms.
At the airport, which is not far from me, their 17" in the 24 hour period is reported to be the record. I guessed that we didn't have quite 18", but I don't wish to brag.
I remember last year having an 18" or better snow one time, but perhaps that was only local. My home, in rural Lincoln County, which is west of Spokane @ 20 miles, does get slightly worse weather. Last year, we drove through tunnels of snow to get home, and that was a long winter!
Meanwhile, in studio news, I have recently finished teaching a beginning drawing class. I'll try to get a full report up at Pastel, soon. With the small measure of energy I have, I have been cleaning and organizing the studio with hopes that I can get some artwork done. Pictured here is a large portrait study I did for a class example and tool.
It is copied, freehand, from a textbook, so nothing to write home about, as they say. I do want to get back to the figure and portrait, and I have an interesting post in that regard coming next.
