Safe and Warm - Carolyn A. Pappas

1-12-11, Snow

This is the closest I'm coming to Nature today. I think She would try to kill me if I were to go outside right now! The snow is coming down about 2-3 inches per hour and the wind is about 35 mph. Luckily I don't have to worry about commuting anywhere.

In this sketch I was experimenting with some grayscale markers that I don't use too often. I thought it the perfect opportunity because it is so gray outside right now. Even the pine trees outside look like a weird dark gray, although it is pretty to see the snow swirling around in the wind.


  1. It looks cold ! I like the framing of the window and the shades of grey. Stay warm !

  2. Brilliant use for the gray markers! We've had our share of this weather too. A joy when I don't have to go out in it!

  3. I love this Carolyn, what a terrific use of those gray markers.

  4. Thanks everybody. It ended up snowing about 18 inches or so, plus a lot of drifting. It is really nice and sunny today.

  5. Oh my, that is a LOT of snow...glad you're safe!
