Spring Thaw

Spring has sprung early in the Peace Country, although we expect a little snow before its time to plant anything!  The thaw always brings something interesting.  A small creek loaded with ice and snow melted from the bottom as the water began to erode the ice.  Below is a tree trunk with layers of ice beginning to drip.

Here’s the bigger picture.  You can see how the layers dangle quite high.  The actual creek bottom is about four feet below.

Miniature Sunset

Judy tackled the fiery skies and rosy atmosphere of a winter sunset over the Peace Country, Canada in this watercolour miniature.  Its tiny dimensions are full of wonderful light and colour, just as we see it here in Northern Canada.  Winter is very beautiful and ever changing here.

Miniature Morning

Judy’s miniature scene captures the intensity of a winter sunrise over the Peace Country.  The colours are always spectacular.  I see there is a hair in the middle of the shot.  That just shows how small these paintings are.  I also see a tiny cabin on the far left side, in the trees.  It is amazing how much detail can be suggested in a miniature painting.
