This painting was inspired by a weather forecast for the Winter of 2019 and a couple photos I found online. I love Winter, from time to time, for the stillness and silence that it brings to all life. That hush from fewer living things being out and about and the insulation of snow is unlike any other type of quiet. My sister especially loves paintings of snow and Winter, and I think the peace is the reason why. I also used one of my favorite colors in the sky, Payne's Gray, and a slight iridescent wash to the white snow. This painting followed the Great Horned Owl and I just felt so free to not be painting feathers. It's small but peace filled.
Prints are for sale in my Etsy shop. The original is sold. However, if you would like me to create a unique snow scene just for you please contact me.
