"SHADES OF GREEN"

A truly magical place in Minnesota, I return this first week in Feb with my son to see his new home.  This is from a few years ago and a walk in one of many parks in this great state.  I  hope to get some more photograph's of snow to take back to my studio and produce  some more paintings.  This 6x6" painting is in oils on Birch panel that has been mounted to a varnished wooden box:

Thanks Cara, I went back into this and thought I would never get finishing tweaking this and that.

Hi Ger,
I grew up in Minnesota - well, at least until I was 10. This beautiful painting reminds me of the incredible beauty of the state, except when it is covered in snow (which has its own totally different beauty - and a little colder). Awesome piece!
