Winter Woods

Winter Woods

18" x 24"
Oil on hardwood Panel

Snow is one of my favorite subjects to paint. 

Since I'm warm in my heated California studio, I can afford to indulge myself in doing winter painting

Stapleton Kearns does a highly regarding snow camp each year, and while I would love to paint with him offering instruction, the idea of being outside working at an easel for eight hours or more is challenging

I like the unity in this painting. It's something that I have been trying to improve

Trees, like the dominant one on the left, is also something enjoyable

The painting has a bit of mystery, just a hint that by keeping on the left side of the stream, one might be able to circle back behind the small rise
