After a long and very cold winter here in the Mid-Atlantic region, personally I'll be happy if I don't see any more snow for awhile. However, I wanted to post this painting I did awhile ago in case there are some out there who wouldn't mind seeing a little more of the white stuff. This scene is just a few minutes from my home looking across some of the open fields of the reserve. The sunset that evening was just glorious and was the initial inspiration for the work. I wish though that I had used just a little more color in the snow but other that that, I'm happy with the result. I'm planning on working on a few more 'big sky' paintings in the coming months and have spent a frustrating time these past few weeks working on various studies but without much success so far. All this work has helped in many ways though and has served to remind me to stick to the basics and paint what I know. Hopefully I'll have some new landscapes soon. This oil is 16" X 20".

Thanks Peter! As mentioned I'll be doing more of these and getting back to some of the types of subjects that are closest to my heart. I have been inspired by a few recent trips to the coast so I'm now hard at work painting some of the things I saw there.

Came upon your site by hitting the next blog button. Amazing things come up, along with the junk.

Love the sky on the Atlantic coast painting ...and yes this winter was a bummer. I like your work very much. You have a good wrist as they say.

Sorry for deleting. I wanted to add something and thought I could also delete that I deleted..ha ha as I can on my blog.

Anyway I post sites that I like on my blog and if you go there you will see I have a number of artists whose work I like listed. And when I come back later I will post your site.
