First Snow Shadows-SOLD

copyright 2008 Hannah Phelps
oil on canvas, 5" x 7"

This is a painting of my backyard. I have painted this rock covered with snow about a dozen times in past winters, and it still captivates me. In the summer, this rock isn't even visible from my house since it is hidden by blackberry brambles. Capturing snow is a great change of pace for painters-the colors are completely different and we can see deep into the woods without leaves in our way.

This painting has SOLD!!

The blues in the snow are lovely. 'Snow and sun' is a bit like 'waves and rocks,' interesting opposite elements.
