It has been a rough year for us all, no doubt. I personally had a really hard time keeping my moral up through much of it and have quickly discovered I am someone who has a hard time creating from the darker side of my psyche. Needless to say that has meant not a lot of work being accomplished overall which has snowballed further into frustration.
This said I have managed to paint a little here and there and this past weekend and artist friend happened to come over for a visit and was perusing through my multitude of practice and unfinished canvases and after much discussion and chatting I have been feeling better and eager to get back behind the easel more often. I spent some time assessing some of the work I have done and this one here stands out to me as my favourite.
It was a scene I came upon on my drive to work early one morning as the sun was just coming up and the light over the snow covered fields really grabbed me so this is the result. It really was an experiment for me as I have never really painted in this style and was going more for a feel than an image. I hope it achieved this! C&C is welcome...
