Vibrating colors and juicy brushstrokes

The clear light in Colorado on a blue sky day produces exquisite colors in the fresh snow.  The violets and blues vibrate alongside the warm golden tones.  This piece looks great in a black frame.

    1. It is amazing Susan! The longer you look and let your eyes adjust, the more color you see in the snow. It's a wonderful time of year to paint. Thanks for your comment!
