First of the month, last of the snow?

Last night’s snowfall started as rain and then turned to heavy, wet snow. Not the pretty stuff that that blows into drifts either. More like wet clumps that slowly shrink to reveal mud and bits of winter’s trash. As I sketched today I watched what might be the last traces of winter melt and drip down the wheelbarrow and the fence and the shed. But maybe winter is not really over, even though we are officially into spring. Flakes have been known to fall in Montreal as late as May so there may be one more wheelbarrow sketch to come.

    I always look forward to seeing your wheelbarrow paintings. Each year the wheelbarrow itself has more character than the year before. Makes for a really interesting series – like Renoir haystacks but over a much longer time.
    Cheers, Chris

    I also love your wheelbarrow paintings. How does that wheelbarrow keep its color being outside so much? Like Monique, I like winter. Not the ice, of course. I may be the only one in Lancaster, PA that does.Or elsewhere.

    The wheelbarrow pics are always a joy. One question-do you use the wheelbarrow for gardening or just inspiration???

    Maybe one more still to come? Don’t you know it’s cruel to tease! Fingers crossed that really is the last of the snow.

    Luckily the heavy rain we had yesterday wasn’t snow. I’d be buried. lol This looks great with the bits of snow on the tree, the edge of the wheelbarrow and the tire. Hope this is the last for you.

    Yup, love the wheelbarrow, and the wonderful composition with all the fence patterns. And all the wonderful greys. Lovely!
