Something warm

River Path

A warm scene to remember on a cold day like today here in our southern mountains. This is painting #50 of my 100 painting project, a view of the North Fork of the New River as seen from a nearby park on a summer's day. And boy is it cold here today! Up to 12 degrees F. And snowing. And blowing snow with winds gusting up to 55 miles per hour. This winter's blast has me wanting to curl up with a good book or my crochet projects. And I may have to bake some cookies. That's the thing about living here in the mountains. When the weather here is nice it is absolutely gorgeous. But when it's not so nice, it's brutal. I hope you are staying warm where you are. And that you have some cookies too.

Thanks you for the summertime memore. That's a great little painting. And yes, I'm staying in where it's nice and warm today, and, unfortunately for my hips, I have plenty of cookies (and chocolate)!

This will bring back those warm memories! Lovely painting!

Amazing how cold it's been up there! We've had a couple of freezes, but that only means we hit 32 degrees for about an hour or so, before heating back up to the 60s!

Nice warm sun... I vaguely remember what that's like.

Congratulations on reaching painting #50 out of 100. It's a beautiful reminder of summer.

Baking cookies sounds like a great plan - stay warm!

This is just beautiful.

I hope this winter isn't going to be a repeat of last year!

Beautiful. It feels nostalgic to me, I don't know why. Very evocative, anyway!

This is a lovely composition, and all that warm color is looking pretty darned good to me on this cold and snowy day.

Beautiful scene and very soothing, too. Especially nice to look at when it's cold and gray out.
