The Blizzard of 2016

I painted this on the night of the blizzard looking out the window. My thoughts were on how much snow we were going to have to clear in the next two days then I noticed the neighbors driveway light
 glowing in the snow. It made me forget about shoveling for a while.

Fly Fishing Art, A Good Run, 12x16

Fly Fishing Art, A Good Run, 12x16, oil on RayMar canvas panel  ( SOLD)

I repainted this recently after looking at it and seeing things that I didn't see before. It helps putting the painting away for a while and when you take it out again the areas that need help stand out.
The composition of the painting pretty much stayed the same but I repainted it using a limited palette.
I wanted to experiment this year using six primary colors and white.

Cad Yellow Lt.
Cad.Yellow Medium
Cad Red Light
Permanent Alizarin Crimson
Ultramarine Blue
Cerulean Blue
Titanium White

Thats me in the water, that section of stream has been good to us over the years.
