THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
Delicate and wispy, the snow pictured in The First Snow Painting shown here swirls and dances in a cloud around the colorful world behind it. This painting seems to show off the transitional period between the last chilly days of fall and the first crisp, cold days of winter. In this painting, snow has been dusted onto the medium in a thin layer, intermixed with the colors of the world behind it in purple, orange and blue. This shows just how fresh the snow in the painting is, as it hasn't yet had the time to become its own entity.
