Snowy Wood

Snowy Wood, 9x6" Oil pastel on paper

Ready to mat and frame

Yesterday, while the northeastern part of our country was digging out of a major snowstorm, I took a walk in my area and noticed the beautiful shadows in blue on the inch or snow we've gotten this week.  Its been an unusually light year for snow (and I'm not complaining). 

The shadows were very blue and really quite lovely. The dark vertical lines of the woods were striking.  This oil pastel sketch may well become a larger oil painting!
