Acrylic 16"X20"
Whether it’s the fact that here in coastal North Carolina the temps are still in the mid to high 80’s and that we hardly ever have more than a few inches of snow throughout the entire year may be what prompts me to paint snow scenes…….who knows?

Buy it, I’m already well into my 60’s and if I’m going to be famous, well, I’m running out of time. I like to think my work has been influenced by the great impressionists, although my wife says it’s because I won’t go and get my eyes checked. At any rate, I do love to paint watercolour and acrylics and it’s a true wish of mine that you enjoy viewing my work. Go ahead and let me know what you think, I love to read your comments. (Well….the good ones anyway.)

    Well, whatever the reason, it’s a grim reminder of what we have to look forward to….don’t even want to think about it! So thanks, buddy, for rubbing it in!!!! However, this really is a beautiful scene….very well done.

  • Delighted I could make your day with this little reminder…..LOL. Are you still running around the country or have you gone back to the pigs and chickens already?

    Well I’m glad you do … love this – esp the contrast of blue and orange … reminds me of how maxfield parrish would do gold and purple snow scenes. I also like the tree branches – i find those hard to do.

  • That really a very kind comment Ginny, thank you dear. PS – I don’t know if doing those branches is exactly my favorite thing to paint either…..lol.

    Been back for awhile….getting ready to leave again for Kitty Hawk, NC from the 14th – 21st of this month. You should come up the coast so we can paint together.

  • Ohhh….. I don’t think I understood that you were going back home in between trips. You’ll need to email me a cell number so I can give you a call while you’re in Kitty Hawk to see what we can work out.

    Kenora, Ontario, not far from where I live, just had snow yesterday, Jim. I don’t mind our winters, but they are sooooo long — they wear out teir welcome before they are over.
    You’ve made winter look particularly happy in this painting, though. Love your choice of colours.

  • People who don’t get but a few inches annually can paint happy snow Douglas….lol Thank you my friend.

  • I think it just depends on where you’re located Luda. My son in the mountains of PA says it’s not uncommon for the trees to still be turning when they get their first snowfall.

    Well I’m glad you did Jim – its lovely. I’ve been told we won’t get much snow at our new home in Nova Scotia, that will suit me just fine.

  • It’s pretty to look at, but you can give me warmer over colder any day Cal. Thanks.
