|"The Weight of Winter - Jan 26"|
oil and cold wax on paper
mounted on board with collage
15.5 x 12"
This is the last painting in this series even though as you can see from the photo of my yard
it is still winter here. After a week of unseasonable weather, the snow has returned.
While I have no intention of painting the actual landscape I have been inspired in all of the pieces
by the way the horizon line divides the painting into a dark area vs. a light area.
The paintings have been both fun and a challenge which is always a good sign to me.
Originally I did this series as a way to learn about working with oil and cold wax.
Now I want to work on some larger pieces with these materials.
It will be slow going as I build up the layers.
Stay tuned and wish me luck!
