First frost

Last night when I looked out my window, big wet flakes of snow were falling. Nothing stayed on the ground but this first frost killed all the hostas in my garden. I took a break from school prep today to sketch them from my kitchen window. Painted on a block of Arches Cold Press paper, 10″ x 14″.

    Alive or wilting they still make a lovely painting.

  3. A sad sketch, indeed. But I do like that trace of white on the fence line.

    Even your dead hostas are pretty. Unlike ours.

    You wrote on a comment that you had a beautiful fall in Montreal. When we drove to Expo all those years ago, I still remember the gorgeous trees in Canada. The color went on for miles.

    What a wonderful autumn palette. I’m enjoying your use of bold dry brush strokes.
