Hi, happy new year greetings to all! It was a longer than usual break for me! Even after setting up the painting stuff in a new place(we are now in Hamburg, Germany), I was suffering from jitters I always get after a period of no painting! Million butterflies in the stomach! Since I have to start somewhere, I looked at a historic building not far from our place, Torhaus (Tor House) originally built in 1757 now housing a museum totally immersed in snow. A snow painting is the right place to start as snow is the easiest thing to paint, in fact you don't have to paint it at all! This painting in a way got me into the groove! No better way of breaking ice, than painting snow! Happy looking! Thanks!
