Winter Sunshine

                                                                   Winter Sunshine, oil, 9x12
The freezing crisp winter days let me spend time in the studio painting. Needless to say here in Minnesota it is winter and when the new snow falls (as too much of it has this winter) the purity and sparkle of the snow as the sun gets lower in the sky on our short days make this a common scene here on the farm. There seems to me to be a special beauty in the coldness of the snow with the quickly dropping sun. Makes the short days worth it to see this nearly every day.

  1. Way to go Jean! I'm glad that at least this cold snow allows you time in the studio to paint. Good to see a true "Jean painting" again.
