Really beautiful! I love the sky colors and all the 'whites' of the snow.

Re: Michigan after the Storm AGAIN!!!

Hi Jill, lovely painting, the cool glow of the sun behind the snowladen trees is great! Snow can be so beautiful, but not when you have to shovel tons of it to get to the road... :-) Your beautiful painting evokes memories from when I was a kid, doing cross-country skiing with Mother, and I had a small backpack with hot chocolate in a thermos, and sandwiches.

Re: Michigan after the Storm AGAIN!!!

Beautiful painting, Jill! I love the sense of weight of the snow on the branches. Lovely patterns of shapes and sizes and and colors and values! And against all the cools---that wonderful glint of light and warmth (and hope) :-) in the high sky! It's a very powerful painting! And I'm enjoying it even a bit more today having our KC high temps above freezing for the first time in ages! And I think that "hope" for warmer days is something I experience emotionally in this piece, giving me even more enjoyment and visual richness as a viewer! Beautifully well done, Jill! Thank you for sharing! Donna ;-} ps---hope the AGAINs soon apply more to gorgeous paintings than to storms! D :-}
