A new reel honoring the ending of the winter season for 2022. The snow is melting fast here so this year it seems accurate! This is my favorite winter painting of the year, seemed like the appropriate one to post.
We had a pretty loud lightning and hail storm on Lake Pend Oreille yesterday. A little bit of excitement as winter slowly gives up the ghost.
Locals are calling it “the big melt off”, which is definitely the case. Winter doesn’t really give up the ghost around here until April so it isn’t time to put away the snowblower just yet. This is one of my favorite winter paintings of the season. It is also my favorite painting size at the moment.
This one has shipped to its new home in Colorado. I am pretty selective regarding commissions I take, this was a fun one.
Some of the most dramatic colors at sunset occur in the opposite direction of the descending sun. A wild punch of color illuminates the mountains to the east. I ran through the snow to film this and the color was intense and fading fast. Summer is gorgeous but that low winter light is magic.
Spending a little time focusing on the moon. With the short days of winter the moon has more time to shine.
Two new paintings, varnished and framed. They have both sold! One is heading to Colorado and the other to Florida.
Snow today inside and outside of my studio. The sun is out and it’s a beautiful weekend.
Another small snow painting. This one from the deck of my studio which has far too much snow weight on it. I should have done more shoveling before it turned rock hard. I guess painting wins out on most of the projects I need to do.
I have just finished this large commission. I am not taking many commissions this year as I am focusing on my solo show work. Winter inspiration everywhere in the snow country I live in… half a foot more coming over the weekend.
