Winter Sunrise - SOLD


This was done for the Wet Canvas Landscape challenge for January. AlaskaDan posted some wonderful images for references and I really liked this scene of the light coming through the snow covered tree. The photos are from the Kenai Pennisula in Southeast Alaska, but this scene reminds me of upstate NY where we spend some time in the Adirondack Mountains. Particularly this winter, when we are getting very cold temperatures along with snow.

Does the painting look cold? I hope I portrayed it -- as I painted this while the mornings temperature was -1 degree F. Tonights forecast is calling for a -16 degrees! We just kept the wood stove well fed & stayed indoors.

Beaucoup de lumière dans cette peinture... Pas simple de peindre des paquets de neige sur les branches de sapin...
Oui j'ai froid en regardant votre arbre mais qui est si beau!

What a coat of winter snow this tree is wearing! Hope it holds up and lives to see the spring!! Lovely job, Nancie! And yes, I rather got goosebumps when I looked at it so I'd say you portrayed the shivering cold oh so well!!

Beautiful sunlight coming through the tree--the only touch of warmth in the painting. And the vaious tones in the snow are beautiful, too. Wonderful painting!

Beautiful colors. I love the contrast of the warm and cool.
