December’s Walk to the Woods

TM9511 December’s Walk to the Woods 30×30 oil on panel

Yes, another morning commute to the studio with an irresistible stop to study the new snowfall and patterns of light as the sun rises. It is an unremarkable view  along any country road, but singularly beautiful with fresh snow and early light. I love the subtleties of the winter woods, full of violets and blues with touches of sienna. As I worked on this painting laying in the whites of fresh snow I was reminded of my early days carving negative “whites” into my woodcuts.  Full circle, or almost. Details below. Enjoy.
