Après la Tempête de Neige…

…avant le coucher du soleil

Reasons to paint: it’s pleasant hard work and it calms me down. This painting encompassed every disruption, every excuse and absorbed it all. I found every way to wreck it—gradually and consistently—over the past two weeks. It’s finished and I’m moving on to the next one.

    OMG, Joy! Our entire family is in all of your most recent painting. The kids can’t believe it was actually painted another photograph. You have such a gift it’s unbelievable. Every painting gets better and better. Time for a show of your own?

    Love , Sharman and Alan

  4. Amazing! It is so realistic looking I thought at first it was a photo. Beautiful!

    Thank you for your wonderful, encouraging comments and also for putting up with my amateur French title (I had help with that one.) Hope you are all keeping warm!

  7. Very nice! Don’t worry about the French. After three years of high school french and two of college level, the most I can say is trés jolie.

  8. Oh my goodness! I love this! Probably a favorite of mine of your work, really. I like the misty look in the background in the upper right quadrant. The texture in the foreground tree is a nice touch and the “rosey” color makes this scene so welcoming! Good for you for keeping with this. There is also a nice weight to this that I don’t see in your other paintings. Beautiful!
