Snow Day

I found this in my list of unpublished drafts. From March 22, 2016.

We had a New England moment — a snowstorm on the first day of Spring. Not too unusual; no one around here had been foolish enough to put away the shovels just yet.
I'm not scared of snow, but had to ditch some plans I'd made. Now I had NO plan -- sometimes the best way to start an unexpected Studio Day.
I confronted a monoprint I'd made recently on a piece of wood. I consulted Bill Creevy's wonderful "The Pastel Book" to reassure myself that this was really a thing, and attacked the little monoprint with a few pastels. I made myself stop when I got here:

More from Tripp Street

Here's a view of the back of a building on Tripp Street. On any warm spring day, this area is crowded with shiny motorcycles and the people who own or want to own them. This oil painting on wood, 24 x 24, isn't about the bikes, but about composition, and the sun & shadows. Enjoy! (looks a little off plumb here, but it's straight in real life)
