Sedona in Snow

It's rare that we see snow in Sedona, so when we have it, it's a great opportunity to get out and paint.  I love catching the play of sun and shadow on the snow among Sedona's red rocks.  A few weeks ago, I had this chance.  The snow is very short-lived, and for one of the paintings, the snow completely disappeared by lunchtime! (That was "Snow on Shiprock.")  For the others, the snow gradually dwindled down to just a hint.   Look at "Over There" to see how little was left by the end of the week.

By the way, despite the snow, it wasn't cold painting at all.  Once the storm cleared,  I was painting in 50-60 degree (F) temps.

I posted a couple of these paintings earlier, but now that they are dry, I am posting better images.  These are also now up for auction at my Daily Paintworks site.  Click on the link by each image to visit the auction. Auction starting bid for each is only $100!
