Ignoring Morning Storm
This morning was the first session of the year for the Independent Painters Group. “D” walked through freezing rain that had turned to windblown snow by the time she arrived at the art center to pose.
Her wet hair was caked with snow and ice.
She also had one of her arms in a cast from a recent fall.
Not a great way to start the day, to start a new year.
The swimsuit had seemed like a good idea back when scheduling for the pose.
The wet hair worked out, but in hindsight the sketch might have been more poignant or interesting had I shown the cast on her left arm, maybe some dangling ice cycles, a background of snow?
