"Ice Storm II" 
by Ruth Andre

If you have lived where there are ice storms you know their beauty and the hazards they can bring. The trees sparkle and bend with the weight from the ice that showers down on them. The roads are also covered with ice making treachery for drivers. I remember seeing my first ice storm and seeing my fall planted trees bent over to the ground. I also remember the festive light the ice played on each branch of the tree. Burr, it was cold. It has been, "A Painting Day".

Wow, you are almost to number 100 of your challenge! The blues and reds in this are really beautiful and I love the contrast against the dark areas.

Hi Theresa, Thank-you for your comment. The Challenge 100 Series is coming to an end and I need to get to the studio and paint the last paintings. It has been a great series seeing many changes along the way.
