Winters Beauty

As winter drudges on, so do I. Although i cannot get down because of the cold and snow as it has a beauty that is as rich as a sun filled summer day. I love the subtle value an hue changes and have no problem finding subjects out my back door. Enjoy

Here is another painting of the Manitowoc River. The set of trees have been subjects of numerous pieces and continue to inspire me in all seasons.

Winter Driveway
oil on board

hello all! Finally I am posting to the blog. It has been a long winter and I guess that I have been in a psuedo hibernation of late. I have had a few trips to the great ooutdoors painting this winter but most have ended in frustration or near hypothermia. I can't complain though I have such a wonderful view right out my living room window (Winter Driveway) that I am never in need of subjects. Beauty is all around us even in the harshest of climates. I plan to get out more this month, I have my eye on a few subjects I want to capture while the snow is blanketing them.
I am getting work together for two shows this summer and several other opportunities. I will be coming out with dates for some summer workshops I want to do as well as some movement with THE WATERS EDGE ARTIST'S group as well as preparing for that show wich will be this fall. Beauty is all around you if you just open your eyes.
