Snow Day 2
Oil on board
This was painted from another old picture from the 50's in my collection, of two children in the snow.
Remember when your mom would dress you in many layers to go out in the snow, and then in 10 minutes you'd want back in for something. My mom would lock the back door on occasion and stand there smiling. O.K. then she'd let us back in. ha ha. She used to make snow ice cream too with sugar, cream and food coloring. We thought it was great. Of course this was freshly fallen snow in the 50's so there wasn't a lot of pollution in the air in rural illinois.
This reminds me a bit of Randy in "A Christmas Story" when his mom bundled him up for school.
Here is my nephew Eli re-creating that moment!
