The snows are deep. It has a startling beauty. I know it will lose its charm. This one is heading to Abend Gallery, in Denver.
Looking up at snow covered branches. I am endlessly dragging them off the driveway, hoping my timing isn’t wrong.
A painting inspired by the ridge that blocks much of the low winter sun. We have loads of snow coming which is inspiring a lot of winter artwork this year.
Though the daylight is brief the combination of snow and moon last night made for a magical evening. I guess it’s only a matter of time before I paint some large moonlight related imagery.
Starting a series of paintings focusing on the forest. I live in snow country so there will be some winter imagery, don’t be alarmed.
The other day we received 8″ of snow. It is always startling to wake up to such a dramatic shift in the world.
I abandoned what I was working on in the studio and did a couple moody snow scenes. Fun capturing the vibe right outside my window.
Three small acrylic paintings, each 5″x7″. I am working on small pieces in preparation for larger works. The middle painting just sold this morning.
Two moody forest scenes. I prepared so many 12” boards that I keep painting images this size! It is a fun scale to work on as it allows for a little quicker experimentation. Ultimately I need to move back to larger panels for my 2020 exhibits.
I took a proper photo of this finished painting. This one is only 12″x12″, I definitely plan on doing larger works with this moody atmosphere.
I have a few of these tiny boards lying around. With our recent and impending snows I was inspired to play with some winter light. This is the first painting in the group. More to come…
December 1st, it seemed like the last day to hike up Gold Hill without snow. So I made the 6 mile round trip excursion this morning. It’s such a beautiful view and great exercise, sorry I didn’t make more hikes to the top this year. As I type this the snow is piling up outside. At this point it is on the ground for the season!
It was in the low 20’s during the hike. By the end I pulled my water bottle out of my jacket and it had frozen!
