I finally got around to painting a new canvas. It is a little larger than I usually do--11"x14"x.75" stretched, but I needed the size to do a snowy landscape! I used some quality, heavy bodied acrylics for this one and I love the results.
You can just feel the bite in the wind as these kids bring home the Christmas tree. The shadows are getting long as they journey toward the warmth of home! It doesn't show up on the photograph, but I added some subtle sparkling in the highlighted snowy areas for extra "frostiness". I think I may list this one tonight, since I haven't had any paintings up in a couple of days.
Please check out my Etsy shop, I have lots of inexpensive treasures there for holiday shopping!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
