I feel like a shell today. Its as if all creativity has suddenly been sucked out of me, leaving me dry. I did a little flurry of snowmen this weekend, but sat in the studio tonight piddling around achieving nothing, with nothing inspiring me. Its as if I'm waiting like a schoolchild for a teacher to come along and tell me what I should paint next. I'm sure it will pass, as it always does. There are ideas in my head but they're taking their time coming out onto paper or canvas.
Meanwhile, this little painting was completed a couple of days ago just 5 x 7 in acrylic. There is not a flake of snow around this year with nothing but rain and wind forecast up to Christmas. This will be the closest I get to snow for now. The blueness of shadows on snow always amaze me. Its rather like water in terms of reflecting the sky.
