Stand of Birch Trees

Oil on canvas, 8" x 10"    I was fascinated with the diagonals created by the  birch trees and the play of sunlight and shadows across the snow. It was a bitterly cold morning, about -17 degrees.

Winter Woods

Oil on canvas - 9" x 12"     This small oil was completed in 2008  as a demonstration piece for one of my students.  A larger oil, 24"x 36" was completed later that year.   A celebration of the  beauty of a "classic" winter that has embraced us for the past 2 months.
