Most of my friends don't understand why I was delighted to plan a trip to Rochester and Buffalo. But I grew up in the Buffalo area, so snow still brings that childhood delight. So Rochester had NONE when I arrived, but a few days later, we had enough to enable me to paint this little scene:
On Monday, when I drove to Buffalo, I had plenty of snow! It was so gorgeous! While I waited for my brother to drive down from Toronto, I had just enough time in my "car studio" to sketch and paint this scene of a church in the suburb of West Seneca, one I passed nearly everyday of my first 18 years in this town.
P.S. Stayed tuned for the next set of my urban sketches, which will come to you from the Gulf Coast of Florida!!
