Snow Shadows

I have such a good time painting these snow shadows, which are some of my favorite colors.  This was really fun to complete and is based on the scene that was outside my studio where I used to live in Soldiers Grove, WI.  This stream is in the watershed of the great Wisconsin River.  We used to do volunteer water monitoring on it.  I hope it remains a world class trout stream.  I loved being around it in every season.  

You can see other applications of this image on my Fine Art America site.  Prints are available there, too.
