This painting captures the spring transition here on Lake Pend Oreille. Currently much less snow than when I painted this a few weeks back.
It is starting to feel like spring is just around the corner. I am excited about changing seasons but will enjoy the snow while it is here.
Monday was my 47th consecutive day working in the studio. Truly hitting the wall and burning out. An amazing winter squall came raging through, I was back on board.
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.
This painting is part of a collection of works I am putting together for my first show of the year. The show is called “Woodlands”, it is a two person show. My paintings and some intriguing sculptures by another artist. The gallery is called Higher Art Gallery. The exhibit opens May 1st, happens to be my birthday.
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.
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!
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.
