For a painter’s party, we were given the missive to paint a winter scene. Those who brought a painting would draw from a hat to take home a painting by another artist—super fun! On the morning of the party day, I pulled out an 8×10 panel. I thought it was important to keep it simple, so I decided on a single animal portrait. These hardy mountain goats almost blend in with the snow in their natural habitat, but not quite, fortunately. The snowflakes falling make it feel pretty wintry! Catherine Fasciato took this one home.
