18"x14" Oil on canvas
It's been awhile since my last post! Life has been so busy with art shows and the holidays and working on commissions for Christmas. I get palpitations just looking at the calendar for January and February and realizing there is so much to get done in preparation for the events of those two months...not to mention all I have to get done before Christmas! So, I'm making a determined effort to slow down, take a deep breath, and take each moment as it comes; making a reasonable to-do list and taking time to enjoy the beauty of winter.
One of my favorite things about winter is hibernation...pure and simple...cozy pj's, hot coffee, a good book. Another is the subtle beauty of the winter landscape. As much as I would adore painting snow, it's just not the reality in my neck of the woods. I do love to see the effect of the sun on the leafless world around me, though. This one, "Winterglow", was done with the goal of showing the evening light across the water and on this old tree filled with Spanish moss.
