Winter Sunrise and Trees

Winter at Sunrise 14 x18“Winter Sunrise and Trees”

This oil painting was completed last week. As you can see I am enjoying exploring aspects of “winter”.  This particular piece was inspired by a photograph I took a couple of years ago after a major snow storm.  It was a quiet morning. The roads unoccupied, so I ventured out into the quiet with my camera in tow not knowing what I might experience.

What I liked about this shot was the peacefulness.  After a heavy snow that’s often what I notice most.  While it’s not my preferred way to paint (working from a photograph) I like how this piece evolved and the outcome. 

The painting was done on a 14″ x 18″ canvas in oils.
