Swiftly Melting Shadow, 12x16, Oil.
It's my one and only ever, plein air snow scene! There was more than one reason to work quickly on this November day as I visited Ohio. Foremost - to get back in the warmth before my toes got frostbitten. Furthermore - the sun that provided the lovely shadow was relentlessly melting the snowy cover and forcing me to add green peeking through.
I like how the distance has a chilly feel, and how I was able to look past the houses across the street to retain my original idea- the tree and it's shadow in the snow. It is a nippy 30 something degrees here in the North of Florida this morning, so I though I better post this while it's at least seasonally relevant. Not so much posting going on these days but I'm still "painting up a storm".
