Stormy. That is the word of the week here in New England. How much new snow fell on Thursday night and Friday morning? Reports are somewhere around 20″, but I stopped counting after the first pass with my plow truck on Thursday evening. It took most of Friday to dig out. Back-to-back blizzards have made for limited progress in my studio.

Still, a trip to Home Depot yielded a full sheet of birch plywood and a backroad route provided fresh, landscape inspiration. I am gessoing 12″ x 12″ panels for new, small works on board, and today was a perfectly satisfactory studio day. With this much fresh powder on the ground, woodland walks will now require snow shoes (hooray!). And next week I will be venturing out of the area on a few field trips (postponed by last week’s inclement weather), which I’m very much looking forward to.
