A Snowy Day Variation #66

'Variation #66' 5x7 pastel
My challenge painting have been on hold for the last week as I get ready for our Open Studio sale this Saturday. But I was itching to add to my collection so I managed to paint three new variations. This is my favorite of the three. It was painted on recyled pastelbord. To make the snow, I shaved some white pastel onto the painting and pressed it in with a palette knife. It makes me cold just looking at this one!
