This is one of my latest paintings. It was inspired by a buck that was out side in our back yard. I took a picture of it through the glass doors of our bedroom. I wanted to paint it immersed in a snow flurry. I tried to get the image as light as I could. I had to scumble a couple of white layers on it. While it was wet with stand oil I managed to add the different colors to the darks and increase the playful brush strokes. Having fun one brushstroke at a time.
