A StreetCar Called Snow

A few posts ago, there is the photo of the
streetcar in New Orleans in the snow (rare).
Anyway, someone wanted me to paint it for
them. As a watercolor artist, I knew it was
next to impossible to paint a snowy scene in
watercolor. I was at the gallery, and I showed
the photo to a bright seven year old who frequents
my establishment. She is quite artistic, and I
showed her the picture, and was discussing with
her how I was not going to be able to do the snow
with watercolor. And she suggested chalk! How
brilliant she was....of course, I could do it in pastel.
Out of the mouth of babes...so anyway, here is the
beginning of the "streetcar called snowstorm"..
Thanks Kate!!
