Winter in the Northeast

Well, we are definitely experiencing the depth of the winter season here in the Northeast.  I have been painting the frozen local scenery and am amazed at the sculptural qualities and unique color combinations found in the snow drifts and iced over creeks which have temporarily replaced the summertime fields of wildflowers, tall grasses and leafy trees.  The Maine winter has provided opportunities to add an exciting and challenging new dimension to my portfolio, which once was dominated by the sun drenched California coastline and the thick urban atmosphere of Los Angeles.
