First Snow

 "First Snow" was inspired by my daughter's habit of breaking into a spontaneous dance when the first snow fell each year. She started doing it when she was a very little girl and continued it for many years.  It didn't matter if we were out in the yard or in a parking lot, when those first flakes fell she would start dancing. It was a great reminder that despite the coming of winter and all it entailed snow is, and always will be, beautiful and something to celebrate.
"First Snow" is 24" x 16" x 6".  She wears a knitted sweater, scarf and hat and stands on an oak cabinet that holds a trio of chickadees perched on birch twigs.
