red barn in winter battle creek barn


I'm in a winter mood, I love snow and we've got a bunch of it.  On top of that this weekend's wetcanvas weekend drawing event included a barn that's here in Michigan so it seemed a good thing to paint.  That's the orange one on a hill; the other barn is from the image library on the wetcanvas site.  Getting anything any bigger than these 2x2 images done during the holidays just isn't happening.  I've got some tasks  to complete for the gallery today and then tomorrow we head north to ski in the New Year.  While we're there I'll be working on goals for 2010 and maybe some sketching but most of the time we'll be on the slopes.

I hope everyone else had a happy Christmas, we sure did!

Lovely paintings, very festive although cold looking.
Have fun but be safe on the slopes!

A splash of red amid the white, grey, and black equals a Michigan winter captured. Here's to a colorful 2010!

Happy New Year friend, I love the snow scenes and the negative painting. It does seem terribly cold for a southern CA girl,we are all such wimps here! Enjoy the slopes, we are working in the yard. Stay warm and looking forward to what's coming in 2010

Helen - I've been in a winter mood too...hard not to be with snow on the ground and cold temps. Both of these are lovely...with the pops of red. Have a wonderful ski trip and a healthy, happy 2010!!
