Winter Stripes

Winter Stripes
10 x 5, oil on panel

Just got back from a beautiful 10 days in California visiting my youngest and her family. I thought I would have time to paint but those little ones were too cute to pull myself away from so I did not.

This is my first one since I have been back - over 2 weeks without painting. I guess I can still do it.

This painting is from a scene I see lots in my backyard in the winter snow. Pattern has always pulled me and so when the row of big pines cast their long shadows across the snow I can hardly resist it. In this one I enjoyed not showing the trees -leaving them to be guessed at.
