Woke up this morning and saw the moon shining brightly. Good sign, should have some sun today. Looked outside and saw a fresh coating of snow. This could be a sweet day! Drove over to Messiah College campus and set up along the creek. This is my favorite light of the year. Here on the east coast we typically have some sort of haze but cold clear winter mornings while looking away from the sun often yield incredible color scenarios. Again my interest was only showing the mass of the pine trees and suggest the several well lit buildings while maintaining warm and cool integrity. I painted very rapidly and was happy to have kept the warm and cools seperate. I wasn't sure what I had as I never stepped back for a look. Upon taking down the umbrella and angling the easel I was delightfully surprised. Parts of the work looked a bit confusing around the buildings but I feel it rings believable, and I will do no more. I feel this one is getting close to what my goal is. Simply identifying everything as dabs or smears of accurately toned, and temperature gauged paint.
