First snow

firstsnow120107

We had the first snow of the winter yesterday —two or three inches more or less. By the time I did the sketch late in the evening it was already melting and there may not be much left in a few hours. That's the kind of snowfall I like. We got just the right amount so Alex and Olivia could play with their friends outside but not so much that it will be a hassle.
Ayer tuvimos la primera nevada de este invierno —unos 8 centímetros más o menos. Ya se estaba derritiendo cuando hice este dibujo ya por la noche y no creo que quede mucha dentro de unas horas. Es mi tipo de nevada ideal. Ha caído lo suficiente para que Alex y Olivia pudieran jugar en la calle con sus amigos pero no tanta como para que sea un engorro.

  4. Nice, moody piece. I grew up with scenes of snow. Now I live in the Southeast US...none...not even any rain at this point!
    I really appreciate your skill in capturing your environment. It's enjoyable to see.
