Plein Air Painting

On a more than chilly day, on the way home
from town, I finally stopped to capture this view of the vanishing
snow, along a river. As others on this web site...
created "EN PLEIN AIR" (French)...
which is on location, not in the studio, and WARM!!!.

Not sure if you notice, thru out this web site, I am in rapture
over brush strokes! Maybe not important to many...but my entire
fine art career has constantly leaned
toward allowing the surface of my painting to express
the energy in capturing it's "essence".

Also important, is knowing what NOT TO PAINT ...allowing the "main" subject to have little competition!
In the Northwest, winter is always a questionable thing:
"Will we even GET SNOW?" to "O, my gosh,
where'd all this come from?"

Back in '96 as I dug 400 feet down to where my van was parked,
by the end of winter, the path "walls" were about 8 feet high!!!
This creation, tho, was captured on a year of little snow!
