Catching a Few Rays November 30, 2012

Winter in the prairies in Canada has its own beauty as do all seasons. However, there is something really quite special about being able to catch the light reflecting off the snow on a sunny winter day. It is often quite breathtaking. Here is my recent painting of one of those times. This is taken close to our river valley. We have a lot of parks with walkways where people can stroll along for miles. Mill Creek is my favorite. I grew up as a child, playing in the wooded areas just behind our house. This area was my playground and I knew every nook and cranny of it for a few miles around. Mill Creek is pretty much dried up in most areas now, but there is still a trickle of water that finds its way through the lower areas. Enjoy the winter no matter what it brings. It is a season of slowing down, relaxing more, breathing in the beauty of seeing the pristine sparkle of freshly fallen snow, and eating a little more rich foods. Have a Merry Christmas as well!

Oh how true this painting is. The shadows, the sun, the dried grasses that are strong enough to not be beaten down by the snow – beautiful!

Thanks for the nice comment. Yes, its one of the things that, as artists, we pay attention to when outdoors…light and shadow and all those small, seemingly little inconsequential things that capture our attention and make us want to re-create the feeling we felt when viewing it all together.
