One of the great aspects of the Pacific Northwest is snow. Not so much on the valley floor, but all around in the mountain ranges, foothills, and east of the Cascades does the magical wonder of snow, truly gain traction.
Snow, with its blanketing ability can take any scene, no matter how pretty or ugly, and totally transform it.
Being in snow, makes us think, makes us feel like a kid again. Snow is deep, moody, and inspiring. It's almost as if life transcends.
Some of my personal favorite paintings are of snow scenes.
I knew I wanted to have at least a couple snow pieces in my show, and one of them is Winter Solitude.
And since Christmas is near, I thought this might be a good time to give you a preview and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
