Our mild Alberta winter, and stunning mountain snow has turned me into that a rare creature – a winter person. I’ve become ‘that’ friend who pesters her other friends constantly to come painting with her in the snow. I get turned down… a lot!
One of my recent winter painting excursions was to Lake Louise in November. We’d recently received fresh snow so everything was under a blanket of clean frosty white. There was a brisk wind that made my fingers numb, but created magic along the mountain edges I was painting. The wind whisked the snow up and away from the shadowy peaks, turning it into a mist of golden orange once caught by the sunlight. What a day!
I have a few paintings on the easel still, from this trip. My next blog post will feature images from the second day of this excursion – my day painting in Banff along Vermillion Lakes and at Cascade Ponds. Until then, please enjoy these images I captured at Lake Louise.
I created two paintings from this trip so far; both have been purchased already. Stay tuned for new paintings of Lake Louise, coming soon.
