Snow Road--Original Landscape Oil Painting

Although I enjoyed painting this 5x7 inch oil painting, I'm glad the recent snow in the Pacific Northwest has disappeared. When the snow first began, I was enchanted by the beauty of the falling snow, but my excitement soon was muffled. The media is now referring to the event as the Month-Long Storm. It began in mid December with over a week of snow, ice, and cold temperature. As the ice and snow began to melt, pouring rains followed, resulting in wide-spread flooding. Interstate 5 was closed, homes were flooded, and roofs leaked and collapsed. It has been a devastating event to inhabitants of the beautiful Pacific Northwest where we are used to mild weather and gentle rains. I have listed this painting for sale in my Etsy Gallery and prefer to remember this scene as a reminder of the beautiful first snow of the year and forget about all the nasty events that followed. The painting can be purchased for $50.00 plus $6.50 for shipping. Just click here. If you would like to see other small landscape oil paintings of trees, mountains, fields, or water reflections please visit my Etsy Gallery.

Nancy: I feel the same way about snow -- looks nice at first, but I would just as soon it went away forever! Beautiful painting. Nice shadows.
