First off, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish you all the very best in 2015! I have not posted lately with the birth of our new (and first) grandson plus the business of the holidays. Plus I have been inundated with email trying to sell me things I don't need or want, so thought you wouldn't want more email either (although I do hope you like my paintings!). We have not had much snow here so far this winter, so I thought I would post some earlier unshared paintings that feature snow as their subject.
Last year we had a ton of snow in December, and since the fall folliage was still remaining on some of the trees and bushes, I was happy to get out and capture some of that colour and contrast.

I painted this in 2012 before the big flood which changed everything! Now the banks are yards and yards of gravel and downed trees.

"K-Country", 12x16" oil on board

I did this one from memory when we got home from cross country skiing in Kananaskis country. It is the view from the bridge leading into the Kananaskis Lodge.

I find winter trees a real challenge to paint, but felt I got really close with this one.

You have got to love the winter skies here in Alberta!

"Winter's Textures", 8 x 10" plein air oil on board

This is an impasto palette knife painting that I did right away after experiencing the scene on a walk. As I have had so much experience plein air painting, I find that I can take a mental snapshot and complete it at home, as long as I do it while it is fresh in my mind.
