We finally had some winter. The bipolar express came through Mississippi with temps going from near 70 last week to the 20's this week.

I was finally in the mood to do a painting this weekend from a snow dusting we got last year. This scene from Scenic MS Hwy 5 - near Hickory Flat, MS where my in laws live.

Sorry I'm behind blogging....I'm getting ready for a solo show and speed painting...Photos below don't need explanations, I don't think. This is pretty much how I paint most of the time.

Final Painting is toned down somewhat to better capture the feel of winter.

  1. Dot, you make this thing about painting look so easy !

  2. Thanks, Craig! This was kinda fun... Done alla prima.

  3. Dot I love how you handled the back ground trees early in your process here, using the color shaper. It's very effective and the final piece is beautiful

  4. Excellent one. Keep posting such kind of information on your blog. I bookmarked it for continuous visit.
