8x10 Oil on Canvas
I would like to thank everyone for their positive and generous comments on my last post. I was really happy with the way the painting turned out, and its great to hear how others feel about it. Sometimes I feel that I am achieving the looser more expressive style and stronger values I set out to learn ....but I am afraid that if I stop painting even for a short time, I will forget the process. Are all artists as neurotic as I feel sometimes?
On another note, we are in the middle of tearing out the inside of our stone cottage, and so I am spending a lot of time moving stuff from one room to another. (Renovating is so much fun when you live in the house at the same time.) As a result, I have been somewhat absent from painting and blog land and haven't visited as much as I like to. I will make the rounds soon to see what everyone has been up to!!
This painting is from a photo I took last year. I don't know if I have ever seen such large icicles. After our recent rain, all of this years snow has melted away. Still lots of time for a snow storm!
