Moonlight and Snow Shadows

Moonlight and Snow Shadows, Acrylic on Canvas, 18"x24", $1000
This is a painting I did a while ago.  I have been fascinated with the effects of moonlight on snow for a long time.  I love the fact that you can see vast stretches of landscape but that all of it has kind of an otherworldly glow.  Also the feeling of quiet and cold is palpable.  Anyway, I thought I would post this before it heads out the door to the Skinny Pancake.  If you happen to be in Burlington, Vermont, stop in to see the exhibit - it will be up from Sept. 3 through 30.

Two Pines

Two Pines, Acrylic on Canvas, 12"x24", $800
This painting is a re-do of a painting I did earlier last year. I liked everything about it except a small spruce that I had added near the center-left.  I took that out and adjusted some of the water colors and voila! - much better.  I am always amazed at the range of color I get from a very limited palette.  In this painting I used alizarin crimson, phthalo blue, and Hansa yellow light plus white.

Sailing at Sunset

Sailing at Sunset, Acrylic on Canvas, 18"x36", $1800
Summer's almost over - at least here in northern Vermont.  In another few weeks, all of the boats will be pulled out of the water and stored for winter.  The lake will be virtually empty of activity until duck hunting season.  This painting seems a fitting finale to a beautiful stretch of summer weather. 

Look for this painting and a bunch of others at the Skinny Pancake in Burlington, VT; they will be on exhibit there from Sept. 3 until Sept 30.  I have selected a bunch of mostly Vermont landscapes for the bar/dancing/ music end of the room and some of my palette knife still lives for the balcony area.  

Also in the month of September, I will be participating in Leslie Saeta's September 2014 30 paintings in 30 Days Challenge.  I will be posting every day during the challenge, so be sure to check in.  As of now, my theme for the month will be sunflowers - that may change if I run out of things to do with them.
