"SNOW BOUND"














I sat in my car and waited for the light to get just a little lower so as to get this shot that I felt would make a great subject for a painting... There is a lot of under painting in this giving the coloring and depth I wanted to create this mood. There must be at lest eight different colors in the trees giving an endless array of shades that move in and out pronouncing depth of the forest. Oil on custom made canvas 36"x 30" Soon to be in a gallery.

I'm from the east coast and this just brings many winter memories to me. Awesome!! Of course, living in the OC area I don't see snowy areas any more naturally only through your blog. Keep up the terrific work. They're gorgeous!!

Thanks Cheryl, I'm going to be painting more as they give me a nice challenge to give that cold feeling of being in the snow... This painting will be in a limited edition some time after Jan.
