12-28-08 "After the Ice Storm (Acrylic)"

This painting may look like a duplicate of the last post and it is but it isn't. It was done in acrylic on canvas. I looked at it as an experiment and had a good time doing it.
Which style do you like better? The watercolor or the acrylic?

12-26-08 "After the Ice Storm"

We had a severe ice & snow storm just before Christmas and I was inspired to capture the moment once things settled down. Ice hung from all the tree limbs and covered the snow drifts making each step crunch. This is December in the midwest, or as they say in Iowa the "middlewest".

12-13-09 "A winter night in Iowa"

At the Christmas art show in Milo the paintings that sold were mostly winter scenes like the one above. They are simple scenes but full of emotion that speak to the heart.
Again, this painting is a mix of watercolor, gouche, and acrylics that come together to work perfectly on a winter scene.

work in progress

The previous post's painting has been scrapped because I couldn't make the composition work out. This painting I started Sunday evening after church and will try to finish it by the end of the week.
I have had a very busy month trying to get our house ready for snow fall and I barely made it in time. The snow came before Thanksgiving and hasn't left yet.
Last Saturday we attended an Arts and Crafts show here in our little town of Milo and had the best show of the year. I sold several paintings and prints.
