Early Snow

Acrylic on Canvas


You may have noticed, that I have a love of vibrant colour.  That's what drives me to paint.  I just LOVE colours.  I often decide on a colour palette before I even choose the subject matter. 

So now I am painting winter scenes.  The skiers and boarders are arriving in our area, and that's what people like to see in the galleries.  I can't blame them - I'm all over everything winter right now.  So how do I incorporate colour into winter scenes?  Well, that's just the quandry I face. I can always ease off on the colour, go with more subtle ones, more greys etc.  - but I don't want to!  I guess I will just have to see what I come up with over the coming months...who says snow has to be white?

Hi Jennifer,
all I can say is WOW! Love your work. Your observations are stated simply and boldly with color to die for. I am going to follow your site from now on.

This is a pretty convincing winter scene, even with all those colors. I love the grays and blues you use, also. One of my favorite winter painting is that Mike Svob one where he uses pink! I long to paint like that!

You really captured the feeling the immensity of the landscape for me in this painting, and also the cold of the day. Gorgeous color and technique!

Wonderful painting! It reminds me stained glass or mosaics. It also has some similarity with M. Pendergast. Colors are vivid, and snow is glowing. Excellent work!
