It feels good to post something different. This is the first completed piece using my limited palette. It is bright and fresh and blue, but not too bright, too fresh, too blue. It feels balanced.
I've been really inspired by the trail system by our new house. In a matter of minutes one can get swallowed into the trees and loose track of civilization. Every day I walk these paths with my dog and lately I've looked forward to the soft stillness. The light has been lasting a little longer late in the afternoon. That magic hour in January has grand, long stretched out shadows because the sun is so low in the sky. I hope this painting reflects that. I want people to feel that cold crunch of snow underfoot and feel the silence. .
