10"x20" oil

Well I survived the party. Being from the introvert side of psychology recovery takes a bit longer. The bus providing transportation was a good idea and the route traveled was very interesting visually. It was a cold day with snow squalls and there was a very festive feel. I'm posting a picture from last year that was done en plein air just as snow started to fall. It got to the point where the snow crystals were inhibiting the ability to mix the oil paint. I enjoy the cool grays just before accumulating snow falls as much as the the interesting light effects that happen as the storm passes and the sun comes out.

This one is beautiful Brian. How subtle! I love the inviting neutral colors and the quiet lost and found edges. Nice.

Thanks Loriann. I'm glad the falling snow forced me to stop painting. Thus preventing overworking. I wasn't sure how I felt about this one for awhile.But after nearly a year I dug it out and feel pretty good about it now.I'm happy to hear you like it. I visited your site. Your work is outstanding! I look forward to further postings. Happy Painting!
