Winter Farm

Now that winter has finally arrived (Don't get me wrong; I was in no hurry for it to get here, and I'll be glad to see it leave.) I'm enjoying how different everything looks when illuminated by light that has been diffused by snow clouds.

Morning Birch Trees

Birch trees as painting subjects have been on my mind for a while now. Glad to finally be doing something about that.

Approaching Weil der Stadt

This is the biggest painting I've ever done. It's 19 x 39 inches. Working so large presents a new set of problems. I can't very easily move the painting around to change the direction in which the water flows, it's more difficult to keep such a large area of paper wet, and of course I'm using bigger brushes than I'm used to. Even so, I like the result.
