Last Snow of the Season, oil on canvas, 12 x 16

Seems as though I have been burning the candle at both ends and maybe even in the middle last couple of weeks. I haven't had a chance to post as often as I would like. At any rate, after what seemed like a winter of very little snow, in this part of the country, we finally had a good storm a few weeks ago. I had an opportunity to get out on a warm sunny day and this piece is the result. It will be my one of my entries into a show co sponsored by the Bennington Center for the Arts, The Bryan Memorial Gallery and the Nature Conservancy. The area where I painted this piece is a lovely spot along the Poultney River, right near the New York border. I have just recently discovered the Nature Conservancy and am amazed by the concept of the preservation of natural habitat for plants, animals and for the enjoyment and respect by all.

This is so beautiful! It's amazing how serene a snow scene can be. Your work is outstanding! Thank you for sharing.

Nicely done! Such a peaceful river view amid the snow.

I got a laugh out of the lack of snow comment - I would have gladly shipped you some of the 80+ inches we here in Maryland got this past winter if it would have helped with the painting of winter scenes!
