Winter Sunset

Winter Sunset, 5" by 7", oil on linen board, January 2009
Private collection, Orlando, Florida

After finishing what might be one of the most exciting little paintings I've ever done, I started pondering the sky. Without a whole lot of planning I sketched out a little color study of the sunset reflecting off of the snow on the ice on the lake. A few trees were silhouetted in the foreground. This is all very exciting, and I'm already thinking about hacking out some larger versions of these little studies.
