I’ve been finding a lot of joy in January this year. It’s been bitterly cold in our region with temperatures regularly reaching -35 C. in the morning. But along with the cold this time, we had brilliant sunshine. It didn’t take me long to bundle up, strap on the snowshoes and head out. Snowshoeing is an activity that warms up the body quickly and in frigid temps, it is just perfect. This painting was inspired by the morning sun shining through to the snow capped hemlocks. Deer tracks guide me along to find one magnificent site after another.
There are a few more similar paintings in my repertoire that I will complete in the near future. I hope you like them.
