EARLY MARCH

I have been working on some larger paintings over the past few months and they have been taking longer than anticipated. This is the main reason for the dearth in posts lately, hopefully I'll have the latest works finished soon! In the meantime, this small oil was completed some time ago as shows the snow and ice looking south over a small stand of trees in Blackwater. I remember it being particularly cold that day with a bitter wind and many longings for spring! The clouds were kept simple and represent the sky when snow flurries are usually present but a little light in the frozen middle ground indicates that there is the occasional ray of sun breaking through.... Early March is an 8" X 10", oil on canvas.

Thanks John, I tried to use a series of harmonious 'cool' colors to create the effect. I'll soon be out there painting again and am looking forward to it!
