Pink Snow

It's funny how in this almost colorless landscape of New England in the winter I am seeing color everywhere. Maybe it is because I need color to lift me up a bit out of the winter doldrums, but maybe it is because the environmental palette is so neutral that I am seeing color leap out at me. Saturday morning the sun was rising as I began painting. The snow seemed tinged with pink and purple shadows, the deciduous trees and mountains far away were deep gray/green. This one is larger than the other paintings I've been working on, maybe 12x10". It's amazing how much of a Sennelier paint stick I can use on a format that small. I'll continue with this one on Sunday and Monday too I think, so this is a work in progress.
