"Five Below"

"Five Below" 10x20 acrylic
As much as everyone is sick of winter, I almost feel bad posting this latest painting... almost ;)
I'm always amazed at just how reflective snow is. In this scene, the snow really takes on the hues of the surrounding sky. When I shot the reference photos for this piece, it was one of those crazy cold evenings when the crisp dry air almost hurts to breathe. I had to keep my camera inside my parka so the batteries wouldn't croak!
And yes, there is a great-horned owl winging away from those round bales in the middleground.
