Watercolor painting, 11×14, on Fabriano paper. This was painted from a photo of my son when he was 2. He was talking to the snowman and really believed that it was alive. He is now 12 and completely embarrassed by this painting!

    Lora, this is precious. Excellently done. I get that wintery feel with all the blue.

  • Thank you, Jim. Ultramarine is one of my staple colors.
