The color of winter

Here is a collection of 10’x10′ studies I have painted this week. Lake Pend Oreille is frozen along much of it’s shoreline reluctantly giving up the ice to March. Giant clouds roll across the landscape in a constant dramatic shift. Photos don’t seem to do the beauty justice and my paintings barely hint at the spectacle…. we do what we can.

Another moody lake painting. Lake Pend Oreille is so dramatic, a constant source of inspiration.

This is going to be the last 10″ painting I will do for a while. I am going to start painting larger works for a show that is just around the corner. What I have been working on the last month or so are essentially studies.
