Winter Trees__snow, landscape, mountains

Winter Trees____6 x 8 oil study on linen panel___$150
When the family drove to town, I took the opportunity to paint a little study of the view out our side door, her in South Fork, Colorado....Only thing was, I left all my brushes in the van, so I painted it with a palette knife. I am no expert in that, but ist was a fun exercise! Immediately after painting this one, I did one from memory as we drove in the other night...I will post it tomorrow.
Big news in our family today! I became a future "mother-in-law"! My son had a wonderfully planned proposal to the girl of "our" dreams :) Everything that could have gone wrong DID, but somehow the good Lord provided wonderful memories for this great young couple, and it was a PERFECT time for them! We love you Tanner...and Ashton!

Oh Virginia, I LOVE this. I can't wait to see tomorrow's post of this scene.

How wonderful to see your family grow in such a joyous way. My very best to all.

Congratulations on your new status as an "almost" mother-in-law. I'm sure you will be a dream one.

Please post on how you paint in the car...I am so intrigued and would love to do that, but can't figure how you manage paints, mineral spirits, canvas, etc.
