BRRRRR! Still cold here in Indianapolis, Indiana. Later this week it may get up to freezing…a heat wave. OK, I know I need to stop whining – boring! So I started thinking about the beauty of sun on snow. I love the colors you see in the shadows and the beautiful colors you see when sky, trees and buildings are reflected. Pinks and blues and lavendars. I wanted to try a new technique using plastic wrap so I did a new painting I call Winter 2014. I guess we only want to remember the good stuff.

The darks are intended to represented the discomfort and depression many are feeling. Right now those feelings are just below the surface. Also the deep shadows you see in bright sunlight. Overall the painting was successful because I love color and this combination is very nice…I just did not leave enough WHITE.
