A Pastel Painting
It occurred to me that soft pastels would be fun to use painting hoar frost, and I was right. A sharpened piece of chalk is just the thing to use to get that particular look of fuzzy frost on branches. On my daily walks I (and my dogs) have noticed that there are lots of small animal tracks in the snow. I usually notice this at this time of the year, its been a long winter and the animals are sensing that spring is just around the bend.
