Snow Day

"Snow Day"
6x6 oil on canvas

This painting brings back memories of sledding on snow days. In the winter I always enjoy displaying this vintage sled next to my garden shed. I love how the late afternoon sun creates warm light on the shed and dramatic shadows in the snow. 

Winter Run II

"Winter Run II"
8x8 oil on canvas

I've been neglecting my blog long enough. With all the snow piling up in Wisconsin, I'm really in the mood to start painting snow scenes again. This is the second time I've painted Shawna running through the snow. I'm also happier with the results after using thicker paint and a larger format.
