an Original Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

'Winter Ice'
7 x 5

Thanks Deb for a great challenge this month! 

I wanted to keep this loose and so I painted it all wet on wet.
I love ice on the trees and bushes - it always looks
so magical...if only it wouldn't affect the electric lines!

Along the Fenceline

©Linda Young 2011
4 x 6" watercolor
An icy snowy morning awaits us in the days ahead; but I'm not looking forward to those cold days of Winter.  Depending what part of the country you come from, the Wooly worm either predicts a long cold winter (lots of black on it's body) or a mild one (lots of brown).  I think I'll just sit by the fire with my honey, my Westies and a nice glass of wine.  Cheers!

"Ice" by Debra Tritt Kreiger

"Ice" 5"x7" watercolor on 140lb arches paper

This is my interpretation of the beauty of the ice on the tree tops and the sparkle of sun light dancing around the icy branches.

20 minutes with an ice cube...

... that I would not care to repeat. Bad enough the light is changing; every time you look at an ice cube, it's different. A lot different! But here is a quick rendition of a single cube melting in my tea bag tray (which has a country rooster on it, whose feet you can see). Thanks for the crazy challenge!
