Winter Glow


'Winter Glow'
Oil 6 x 8

I was going to take a break today to get some
housework done...well, it just didn't happen. I
sat down at my easel and started this painting,
working from photographs I took after the first
big snow we had this past December. The late
afternoon light on that day had produced
the most gorgeous colors.

Once I got started, I could not stop...I did not
even break for lunch. Love being in this mode - I
feel so creative and the energy is really flowing.

If you are interested in seeing any of my other
work, please go to my website. Thank you!

Claire, I LOVE winter scenes and the play of warm sunlight off cool tones. You demonstrate this with the sunlit brick of the barn and the silo in a midst of blustery snow. NICE!

So peaceful! It makes me wish for snow!

I too love winter scenes and the glow of the sun on the side of the barn! In fact, the cornfields around where I live look much like this one. I love the hint of pink in the sky along the horizon...Beautiful, Claire!!

Thank you, Lyn, Kerri and Sherry! I'm looking forward to another snowstorm so that I can get more reference shots!
