One Fine Day--November 2010

Painted today 24x18 inches ..pastel


  1. Really some beautiful paintings today on your log. I really enjoy "One fine day" Keep up the good work!

  2. While I'm not exactly looking forward to the return of snow (not after last winter's record-setting snowfalls here on the East Coast), if all snow looked as beautiful as this painting, I'd welcome it.

    Excellent play of light and shadow, both across the snow and amid the trees!
