Yes- here's to them! Like my mother's husband up in Post Falls who's probably doing this right now. Nice sketch, Joseph, and Happy New Year, or "Gute Rutsch!" as they say here in Germany.

Wow, that's an amazing sketch. Did you work from a photo or is your mind's eye just that good?

And yeah, gotta love the snowplow guys. Even if the scrape-boom, scrape-boom of them going by wakes you up.

So many in this town complain about the poor job they've been doing. For the past three weeks it has been one storm after another... I respect the poor guys. My Mom is married to a guy the drives the plows back home in northern PA.

This one was worked from a photo. Yes I cheated, but it's the first drawing I've done since mid-October. Last night at 11:30 PM I got this notion to draw again.

Great sharing Joseph, we don't get this in Malaysia.
I salute people with this tough task as career.
Beautiful!
It's great to get back the drive to draw, which is very important to an artist!

Great drawing Joseph. I love how much of it is left to our imagination. Perhaps its a new version of fill in the blanks?

Happy New Year to you as well! Hope you have a great one. If you're passing thru ATL over the weekend, and will also be here Monday night, then do check out the Apache Cafe for figure drawing:

Or if you're looking for a good restaurant, just let me know and I'll steer you toward something you might like :)

I love this sketch! It really depicts the brightness of the snow. Hail to the snowplowman, and happy New Year to you!

Love the contrast and the "lack" of color. Thank you for visiting my blog!
