Beginning of pastel painting of snow around the rabbit bush

This painting is from a photograph I took near home.  I never got around to painting rabbit bush at the peak of its blooming season in September!  Now it is like the bushes are freeze-dried and the yellow blossoms have faded to a beautiful tawny gold.  The snow melting in crawling shapes add an interesting change to the pebbly, sandy earth.

More on this tomorrow...

It's so wonderful to look how you work! I am really love this composition! It is snowing! And warm in bushes at one time!
