Deep and Dark December

Hello friends, I painted this today. In the middle of a snowy winter, it's hard to focus on landscapes when all I see is white snow. In this piece I used a limited assortment of color. Paying more attention to mood and compostiton of shapes. 24x 30 inches on prepared gator board. .. regards tom


  1. Oh, I just love this. Especially the hills in the background. So much depth! :)
