Painting - Oil On Canvas
The very first snow of the year when it falls at sea level doesn't kill all of the plants. If you are quick you can capture these magical moments before they evaporate into raindrops. This is a big painting loaded with oil paint, applied thickly with palette knife and big brushes. I really let it all go with the abstraction of this one. I was enamoured by the first snow fall here in my little seaside town on vividly colored tufts of beach grass. I was drawn especially to the blackest black of the shadows under the brightly lit tips. It is incredible how the landscape desaturates when the foilage goes dormant for the winter. Fun painting.
