Winter’s Water

Once again trying to capture the feeling of snow falling on the lake. This is another 24″x30″ acrylic painting on panel.

Mark making is always an important element in my painting process. I was pleased with the results on this piece. The suggestion of movement and precipitation is there but it also has an expressive quality that elevates the image.

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.
