The north woods is a shadowed land in the winter. It is a beautiful and isolated painting paradise. Come summer it is much better.
The last two weeks we saw the final gasps of winter. It seems appropriate that I have just sold this cold landscape painting as a farewell. The creation of this one is detailed on my YouTube channel.
As the name implies this one is from January. Taking high resolution images of my woodland paintings before I varnish and frame.
Though it is spring the last two days have started winter white. Spring seems to have taken a breath.
A final capture of this painting, it will be part of “The Woodland” show. The tree adjacent to the tree in this painting blew over in a recent windstorm… towers fall.
This painting captures the spring transition here on Lake Pend Oreille. Currently much less snow than when I painted this a few weeks back.
Special shout out to the Turkey Boys.
This is part of my “Woodland” series. There is a video about the creation on my YouTube channel.
I noticed it was bright and clear this morning just after 6:00 AM. The days are getting longer and I am excited!
More snow coming, more winter paintings ahead. It felt like spring was coming early, I knew it was just a temporary state. Just another excuse to paint some more winter imagery. There is a feeling I am chasing with some of these works… so more opportunities.
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.
As I write this we are buried in snow. It’s such a dramatic and beautiful change to the scenery. Of course it also pretty challenging at times!
I made a YouTube video about the creation of this painting. Check out my channel if you get a chance!
