A friend of mine has a home in Idaho snow country and took some pictures I've used as images to work from. Here are two 8x10 scenes to remind us it's still winter in most of the country.

This is an image I've had for a long time and finally reworked it, but in wax. Also cut it down from 16x20 to 12x20 by removing part of the top and bottom, to emphasize the sunset on the houses across the street from Green Lake. This was done with a hot stylus that is dipped into various colors of wax, then the technique becomes like drawing as you must put down a line quickly and then it dries on the surface in seconds.
