I got a few hours of work in yesterday and now, today, as I sit down to the drawing board again, here is the piece so far. With snow blitzing everything outside once again today, I am glad that I am indoors, warm and out of the cold. With hope that the power continues to stay on as the winds and snow swirl outside, I shall see if I can't finish this one up today. The dreaded water comes next I think . . . may as well get on with it! Then some final touch ups here and there making sure that all the intensities of tone work and help to give complete depth to the piece, and this one will be ready for a mat and frame.
