"Moonlight Blanket"
Oil on Canvas 18" x 24"

"This painting revisits a composition that I did quite some time ago, about ten years ago in fact. With a heavy snowfall the caps of snow on rocks by the streams are wonderful. It had been a while since I had done a wintertime painting. This is one of a long series of nighttime paintings. Some are in winter and provide a similar, overall blue of this painting. But few have had the shaft of moonlight illuminating the soft mounds of fresh snow. This kind of scene is impossible to capture with a camera. I'm very pleased with the feeling of this painting.
