Winter Rolls into Montana

 

Winter Rolls into Montana – The joke in Montana is that the four seasons are almost winter, winter, still winter, and road construction. That is mostly true. But, when we go from road construction to almost winter, it is often a very short season, and winter is upon us before we know it!

This cluster includes the following pieces:

 

First Snow

This barren snow-covered landscape was done in response to our first winter in Montana. Everything changed from the many colors of fall to the monochromatic whites of a snow-covered hillside. The fence is the remaining, meager sign of civilization when nature blankets everything else.

Frost

This abstract work was inspired by a frosty, snow-covered landscape painting done in monochromatic shades of white. The reality of snow is that what we perceive as blanket of “just white” snow or frost is actually comprised of very complex crystals, each with an intricate structure and pattern that we do not see.
