Winter Creek Bed

One from tonight 15x18 inches --pastel--regards tom, $400.00


  1. Tom, this is wonderful!!!! How do you find so much color when looking at such a scene in life?? I have scene like this here on the ranch, and at times they look so old, or weathered, or like they need washing!! Must be on days there is no sun, I guess. Your work is wonderful!!!

  2. Hello Ida thank you for stopping by and viewing my Blog. In winter scenes I have to just go with colors I enjoy working with. Other wise the landscape becomes rather dull this time of year.
    regards tom

  3. Another nice one. The colors sing!
