"Snow Shine" 2015 oil on canvas 24" x 24"
(Private Collection, Philadelphia, PA)
I like to run in a suburban neighborhood. One day I saw this ice glare in the gutter so I went back and took a photo. I painted the image in the studio. It was an enjoyable painting process making that thin sliver of white snow on the gabled roof against the dark blue shadows, the stripes on the road, the stop sign and the Crest toothpaste green of the sky.
