I can’t say that I have been enjoying all the snow we’ve had recently. However, I did like this snow in the early morning hours. Nature seemed to be trying out every shade of blue to see which fit in correctly…

The Jan. 2nd snow storm was not one to be out painting in. After many miles, stopping at favorite spots along the way to marvel and photograph the altering landscape, we came to the cliffs. Always scouting for new and unusual views, since last summer I had been saving this for a fog or snow event. The perfect time was now: wind, snow, evening, lighthouse beam, 4 wheel drive. Only the hunter’s eyes of Buddy Vanderhoop caught us in my painting spot as he rounded the circle doing a last weather check of his families’ restaurant…

Meanwhile, with the cold snow cover and warm air above, the landscape view softened from the snow fog. Overhead the gray cloud cover gently misted and rained dictating painting be done from inside my van. Though it was warm enough to create without gloves, the 4 inches of slushy wet snow also made me happy to paint from the driver’s seat…

After the February storm, the sun came out. It warmed up enough to paint outside without gloves for about an hour before I had to slip them on. The sky was brilliant blue and the snow shadows reflected the blue of space above. It felt great to be out painting in windless winter air…

This was the tail end of the storm, a true Nor’easter. The wind was gusting to at least 50. Even inside the car painting, it was rocking. I made a sketch and some mental notes, but had to finish in the studio. I wanted to capture the low light before darkness. That always creates a problem because it does get dark fast then…

"Corn Snow"

“Corn Snow”, this is a small painting, 6″ x 8″, oil on canvas panel. $550.00 USD

I had been scouting this field from afar since before Xmas. Since hunting season slowed down I decided it was safe to traipse through the cornfield to paint this one un-mowed part. The farmer must have left it standing to feed any local wild life. I only spotted a snow goose flying inquisitively overhead while I was painting. A passing lone dog walker and his sidekick stumbled upon me from behind the cedars. After a friendly greeting and informing me that I was in a no trespassing/hunting field, I finished up and found my way back via a longer, snowier route to my van…

This was a hard one to capture, as snow was still falling when I went out. I did some work in the car and finished up in the studio…
