"Winter Brilliance"


Just left of yesterdays painting is a river and little waterfall. The waterfall was what I really wanted to paint with part rushing water and part frozen water. But I started too late in the morning and the bright sun washed out the scene so I used the dam as an abstracted element to hopefully keep your eye from falling out of the painting and lead you into the cool shadows cast by the trees on the far bank.
10"x8" Oil ($190.)

Okay where was I wandering around when you pulled this trick out of your hat? Speed painting.
This one is fantastic. Love the impasto.

I feel so encouraged because I really didn't/don't know what to think about this one. Maybe your monitor makes it look better than the real painting??? But the nice thing about blogs, we can post it all
