New winter plein air oil painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Winter's Patterns No 2", 8 x 10" plein air oil on board
$495 framed, free shipping and handling

Another late winter plein air just completed. Unfortunately the days have been cloudy with scattered flurries, but at least the temperatures are warmer. I did this one from the car again due to the wind, and when I tried to go home, I realized my car battery was dead. Luckily I was able to pull over a passing driver to give me a boost after about 10 minutes. Note to self: when car painting, make sure the heater fan is turned off!!

This will hopefully be my last snow plein air of the year -we are headed down to Moab and beautiful points further south this weekend. I am taking my painting gear and I am really excited to paint the wonderful formations and colours of the area. If we are able to get to an internet site, I will post my efforts, or at least some photos to make you jealous! Otherwise I will see you back here after April 16th.

Also, please check out Making a Mark's blog this week. It deals with making your own paintings rather than copying the content of other painters work, and is a 'must read' for all daily painters. Katherine Tyrell's further post on how to make a painting really yours is here.

Enjoy!

I came over from FPDP to see this one Sharon. I love your work. Nothing else to say.
Oh, except that I'm a car painter too ;) and I love it.
