Well it had to happen. After a couple months of constant snow my paintings followed suit. I am taking on a large winter landscape project but wanted to dive in and play with some small images first. The commission is a different color scheme but it’s good to get my groove on with these first.
We have been buried in snow for months with months to go. I enjoy the scenery but it can also be difficult… paying my respects to the winter.
I have this one varnished, framed and boxed up. Tomorrow I will be shipping it to it new home in Minnesota… snows permitting.
Vernal Equinox has arrived. North Idaho has already had a real taste of spring. A bit more snow in the forecast but it is the last gasp of winter.
Happy to learn this painting sold through Abend Gallery in Denver. Happy New Year!
This piece was sold through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole (a couple years back). It was inspired by the beauty of the Kootenai National Wildlife Refugee in North Idaho.
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.
