Just a Dusting
Oil on canvas, 10 x 10 inches
A dusting of snow and cold enough weather to keep it around for a few days. This is the 4th in the 30 in 30, and though it is okay, I could fuss with this one for days. However, I believe it was better before I fussed as much as I did! Hard to put down the tools at the right time. The sculptor Giacometti is said to have had a brother-in-law who "stole" his sculptures and sold them so he, his wife (Giacometti's sister), and Giacometti himself could eat and keep a roof over their head. Left to Giacometti alone, they likely all would have starved. I'm far from starving, sell or not, but maybe I need a brother-in-law like that just to stop me at the right moment!
