8 1/2"x 18" oil

Day 4 was a half day. I dont know the exact temperature that morning but it was probably around 15 degrees farenheit. I was on a hilltop and trying to get the right color of a mass of pine trees. The area I was in had these great masses of darkness that were pine tree groupings. I did this one around 9 am, little wind but gray conditions again. Finished this one, went back to the lodge for lunch and then home. I find the abstract compositions with good color the most interesting pieces of most art. It is quite a journey to find your voice through painting. Some day I wish to sing!

Brian,
You DO sing already! Beautiful landscape.
Grey days can be friend to us all as they are the great blender/harmonizer of color.
