Early Snowfall

Early Snowfall
18" x 24" Oil on stretched canvas
$595.00 + $20. s/h


This view is from Lower Gold Camp Road, which is very near our house.   I have painted this scene before but without the roof of the Nature Center.  This time I thought I would leave it tucked in behind the trees.

Thankyou for your commment Pam. I've liked seeing your landscapes, and now the ornaments. I like the shine and reflections you give them. And compositions.

Claire Beadon Carnell said...

This is beautiful, Pam. The colors really give the feeling of a cold, sunny winter's day. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Debbi Smith Rourke said...

Beautiful. What luscious colors even in winter!! Would love to see it in person. :)

Catherine Jeffrey said...

Very spectacular scene. The colors are amazing, and the snow gives it such atmosphere. The blue hills in the background add that extra dimension.

Pam, you live in beautiful country! Love your landscape paintings! I've learned so much from your blog. I had no idea of the beauty of your area!

Love the composition and the complimentary colour scheme. Very nice work!

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

Nice design up to the peaks. Beautiful! I like how you control and contain the color so that it holds together. I'd be very tempted to overdo the reds, I think.

Martine, Merci beaucoup. J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de autumne.

Thank you Caladh, I so loved painting those ornaments.

Claire, Thank you. We are having cold mornings, but still warm days.

Thanks Debbi, Maybe someday you can see this in person. We should plan a fall painting outing.

Catherine, Thank you. I know that I am so lucky to live in such a beautiful location!

Thank you Nancy, Sometime drive up from Santa Fe and visit here!

Claire, Thank you. sometimes Mother Nature just gives us the right complements!

Katherine, Thank you. I read many fall blogs of landscape painters who talked about overdoing fall colors. I find that if i mix some of the complement w/ each color, it grays it enough that it doesn't get overdone.
