This painting is also from memories of my brothers and I exploring our woods in Pennsylvania. I created the snowflakes by sprinkling salt on the wet paint. When the paint dried, I simply brushed off the salt. That is just one of the techniques my art instructor, Mr. Ernest Haring, taught me.
I created several more paintings in his class and gave them to family members. I still have this painting hanging on our wall. Everytime I look at it the memories of my childhood become very vivid.
Mr. Haring's lessons are still with me today.
