Winter Trees, Frosty Air

Winter Trees, Frosty Air – 18″x24″ Oil on Canvas – SOLD –
The day I took the photo reference for this painting was a grey, windy morning after a
spring snow storm. There’s a lot more color in the painting than there was in the original
photo because I want to paint the way I see a scene in my head and heart; not necessarily
just the way it appears exactly in my viewfinder. And to me, this day was all about the frosty air nipping at my ears, nose and fingers, and delicate mazes of negative spaces in and around the poor, chilly bare branches of the trees.
