"Fourteen Trees on a River Walk"

Acrylics on Canvas
12" X 12"

Finished Finally!
Another experiment that turned out so well.
I am pleased with myself.
The challenge to myself this time was to paint a winter scene with no shadows.
In the winter here we have Gray days, no sun, just cloud cover, so there are never shadows.
With three colours I did it!
I used:
Phthalo Blue (Green Shade)/Titanium White & Paynes Gray
(All Golden Heavy body Artist Acrylics)
Paynes Gray was used only for the trees.
With proper shading/mixing of the Blue & White I was able to achieve many variences in the snow colour.
tehehehe, Sometimes I surprise even myself!
I think I am getting better at painting Winter in my style.
Coffee time now!
Be well all

"Dogwood Blossoms"

I think that I did capture the delicacy of these beautiful flowers.
They are so fleeting, and so welcome in the Canadian Spring.

The beginning.....

This will always be my favorite Painting.
As, it is the first one that I completed that had a professional look to it.
....A stand of Lodgepole Pines on the highway to Banff, Alberta, Canada.
