“Winter River”
8″x10″   oil on board

Here’s a recent painting completed several weeks ago of the Santa Fe River, which is near my backyard literally.  This is my first winter scene in which I wanted to paint the most essential elements, such as the river, the snowbanks and the trees.  I just paint the most important stuff and leave the non-essentials out.  I especially like how the background turned out, as the sun was starting to set, and the colors glow through the trees and hills nicely against the snow.  This painting is now available on my “paintings” page.
