Homeward

Homeward – 30”x24”, acrylic

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.

Lake Pend Oreille Sunset

February Sunset

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.
