Red Twig in Snow
The last week of January brought an epic deep freeze thru the Columbia River Gorge.  Several feet of snow fell, followed by freezing rain, which encrusted everything in a twinkling sheet of ice.  Our red twig bush was encased in ice and fluffed with snow next to the frozen pond.  There was a softness about everything that I tried to illustrate here.

I see all that you describe i that one little red twig bush... the softness of snow with the crystals of ice and sweet contrast of the bark with the coolness of blue. My brother lives along the Columbia River Gorge so I know what chill you get there sometimes! I look forward to more depictions of the area during the challenge (if you're inspired to do so, that is!)

Hi Lorrie,
I am sure you will see much more of the Gorge in the coming year! Where does your Brother live? I'm in Hood River. CathyO
