Fall is just around the corner and here I am pushing winter….my apologies to anyone who isn’t ready for that thought yet. I just added this art print to my Landscape Oil Collection and wanted to feature it. I titled it “Snow Covered Pine”. For this print I chose a simple oil technique to create a soft and comfortable look. To add a subtle element of contrast, we have the deciduous tree on the right of the frame and a hint of a pathway or road in the lower right hand corner. I also used a hint of pastel color to create texture to a cloudy sky, just enough to make it interesting, but not distracting. For anyone that has been around a snow covered pine forest, I am trying to evoke the feeling that is experienced in such a situation. There is stillness in the air and nature seems to be at peace with itself and we seem more as one with nature. In this calming and tranquil effect there is an inner peace that comes through. Can you visualize yourself in that setting? I love those moments. Thoughts?
I invite you to come into the gallery to view the collection in Landscape Oil.

My original post showed the snow in the trees around the area where two freeways come together in the Seattle area during an early morning snowfall in December. This series is around the transit center just off of those two freeways.

For my gallery, I’m thinking of turning the first two into B&W photos….this last one says watercolor to me….thoughts?
Ok, there is irony in the title…the pictures look like they are deep in the woods, when in fact they are in the middle of a highly populated area of Seattle. Close to the intersection of two major freeways and multiple business highrises, I capture these shots of the seasons first and sometimes only snowfall in the Seattle area. The snow occurred in the early morning hours mid December and stayed on the ground into the early afternoon. I intentionally tried to capture a deep woods look as I was nowhere near a place to hike into the woods and knew I would have a limited time to capture the snow before it melted. Enjoy!!
