One of my favorite snow falls of the winter season is the one that buries you in snow just before the warm winds of spring begin. That kind of snow is usually wetter so making snowmen and having snowball fights is much more fun!!
Cardinals are one of those beautiful creatures that you never forget...no matter your age when you first see one. I was blessed to have grown up with them around me. After many years living in areas where there were no Cardinals, I once again am living among them. The are truly jewels of our forest!!
Have you ever witnessed an owl flying at night? We used to see them all the time when we lived in California. One of the wonderful things about owls is that their wings make almost no noise when they are flying. I've learned that is because their wing feathers are very soft and they need stealth to catch their small scurrying prey. My inspiration for this painting was a video of a Eagle Owl coming in for a landing...now that was awesome to see!
The mood of the skies over the Colorado mountains never cease to capture my imagination. Hang on the wall or display on a tabletop easel....either way, you'll always have the mysterious mountain skies within your own imagination!
There are actually two paintings I did on this canvas. The "under" painting is of a large white flower with a deep red center. The "over" painting was done with some brush strokes of white paint to partially cover the under painting and give the final painting of three poppies an interesting backdrop! This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas so no need for a frame.....it is your choice!
