First Snow Winter Impressionism Daily Painting

"First Snow"  orig post 2012
oil on panel 

I could not wait to paint the first snow in the woods.  The sun was setting.  The few lingering leaves of fall "popped" off the blue shadows on the snow.  This contemporary impression has an abstract feel to it in my efforts to capture the moment without getting too detailed in all the trees.

I encourage you to notice how the painting becomes clearer as you step back a few feet rather than closely from your monitor.



Very beautiful abstract painting !!!
