This past weeks’ word challenge included, winding river – so I thought I would have a go at it.
We had 2 inches of ice and sleet that wasn’t bad and after living in Maine, we can handle that with no problem, but our heat has been out for three days (repair guy will be here tomorrow) – that’s a little uncomfortable.
It became a bit of a challenge manipulating oil pastels because of the cold, but I wanted to complete the challenge. End of Fall was from my imagination using Mi-Teintes pastel paper (5×7), looking forward to more normal conditions to paint this coming week.
This week I plan to paint a couple of 8×10 winter scenes – unless another unexpected disruption comes knocking on our door.
This is so beautiful! ❤️
Thanks Violet – glad you liked it!
Beautiful – great colors, love the mood

Thank you Dorann for your beautiful comment.
Sending you ray of heat Mary, no doubt the warmth of your heart will sort the paintings. Nothing can stop you facing a challenge and it is looking great.
Thank you Doron, the warm rays your sent worked – we have heat! Thanks, always enjoy your heart-felt comments – this scene was a joy to paint.
Great pleasure Mary could never see you sitting freezing out there.. If only I had the code for sun!!! Enjoy your painting.
I would love to follow that river, looks like a lovely place, Annie
Mary, you’ve richly captured this scene in a poetic fashion. It’s quite stunning, and from your imagination? Glorious.
Thanks for your lovely comments – appreciate receiving them.
I love this… the color is gorgeous! It is very cold here in northern Calif. too… dry as a bone tho.. xo
Beautiful Linda – thank you for your generous comments! Amazing weather this year.
Beautiful! Hope the heating is on again. I wouldn’t survive a day without it in that weather 🙂
Thanks Madu! Yes, we are finally warm again – we have been 30 degrees below normal temperatures for the last 5 days. Going back into the 50’s on Friday, lol it will be a welcomed “heat wave!”
Very pretty work, Mary! 🙂
Wonderful, the colors is fantastic.
Thank you for your lovely comment.
Lovely, Mary! I could easily hang it on my wall. My colours.
Thank you Ann Christine – glad you enjoyed the piece.
Oh, I hope your heating gets restored soon!!! Your painting, however, doesn’t look frozen! It has those beautifully warm, end of fall hues. 🙂
Toasty warm, finally! Thanks Marina – I’m slowly getting back into a routine. Have a wonderful week!
Your paintings never fail to give me a sense of peace from its first glance 🙂
Beautiful comment, thanks very much!
