A work in progress

Patience has never been a virtue I was familiar with. This morning I found the time, energy and drive to do some painting. I have to say I really excited about the painting so far.
I stopped myself even through what I really wanted to do was put the snow in and the dry grasses. For a change I was able to control the impulse knowing that the white would never stay white when the rest of the work was wet. I'm just as proud of my unusual discipline to stop working as I am the work that I did do.
(There is a glare on the left hand side of the painting due to a hasty photo)
I'm going to be away for a few days so I won't be able to finish up this painting until next weekend when I lay the snow in and cut the sky and branches back in. Still, I wanted to let you have a peek at what I got accomplished.

I really love this. The greens and and shadows are perfect . To me the painting is complete... Sign it, start a new. What do I know, I just dabble. : )

You've really mastered the sense of space and form in the trees. I'm looking forward to seeing the addition of snow!

Thanks Janelle - I just got back from a couple of days at training and needing to rest but hopefully the finished product will be postable (is that even a word) by the weekend.
