Oklahoma Snow

Snow is a rare event in Oklahoma. A couple of weeks ago we had a really good 3 inches and cold enough temperatures that it stuck for a while. I love being the first one out of the house when it snows…making the first foot prints…listening to that crunching sound under my boots. Here is what it looked like from our front gate…my impression anyway…

Day 25 ~ Snow Jewels

This is my last entry for the 30 days. I  painted 25 out of the 30, and I know I learned a lot. I have always loved this photo that my son took of his two sisters and I needed another winter scene for December in the calendar that I will make from my paintings this time around. Hope this one makes you smile. 🙂

Thank you all for following me and all the likes and comments. It is so encouraging on a challenge like this to have people cheering you on.

If anyone is interested in a calender, let me know in a comment or email me at bealily@inbox.com. 🙂


Day 5 ~ Sledding Fun

It doesn’t snow much here on the prairie where we live, but one winter we had a really good snow, and the girl’s took full advantage of it finding the highest hill they could, which is not easy here on the plains. This turned out to be a fabulous sledding party.

This is day 5 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days. Leslie Saeta who is putting on this challenge for artists suggested that we do a calendar with 12 of our paintings. I thought this was a great idea, so I came up with a couple winter scenes.

Notice my women are faceless…for now, anyway…:)
