This country can look awfully stark and severe in the wintertime, but it is also, in its own way, spectacular. Winslow loves to get out and snuffle through the snow, but his short hair doesn't provide too much insulation. Before long he's happy to jump back in the warm truck.

This will probably be my last post until after Christmas, as we'll be spending next week in Portland with family and I'll be taking a break from painting. Have a great Christmas holiday, everyone.

This is lovely, Don. I'm amazed how you work so well in both oil and watercolor.

Have a lovely Christmas with your family. I'll look forward to seeing what wonderful paintings you do in 2013!

You do a beautiful job with your snow paintings! They've inspired me to get back into landscapes!

Hi Rahina, thanks. Yes, so true that Facebook has co-opted the blog world. So goes technology. I'm trying to work up the nerve (or desire) to dive into Facebook. Happy 2013!
