new painting – Maria and Leilani’s Sunset Run

Hello all, Today brings new snow and a new painting. Yes, the latter despite the former (maybe I should be out there instead of in here blogging, I mean). After last weeks’ epic powder day we have had barely a flake and the groomers have been scraping up the same sad snow all week. Inspiration…
