Oklahoma Winter --watercolor

"Oklahoma Winter, 5 by 7 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches

"Sometimes in winter / Forgotten memories"
                                                                                    --Blood, Sweat & Tears

We weather with the seasons, as do aging buildings on Oklahoma farmsteads. I'm fascinated by the metaphors of rural life.
Memories, stories awakened especially in the winter, for some reasons deep inside. Thus today's #WorldWatercolorMonth challenge, Day 7.
Palette--Ultamarine blue, Burnt umber, Raw umber, Chinese white
