Alpine Lake Landscape Painting

This weekend it snowed, so I suppose when I painted this image, it was the ice and snow in the back of my mind that caused it to emerge.  The painting is entirely from my imagination.  Creating the snowy mountains and the freezing foreground of water was fun.  The painting developed over an under painting of red that gives it a nice warm glow.  I also imagined a strip of yellow  trees on the edge of the lake.  The yellow and red were just enough warmth to keep me happy in this freezing winter scene.  Reproductions of this acrylic landscape painting are available here in a variety of sizes and on a number of different surfaces.
