Valley Blues

The setting sun had plunged the valley floor into deepening shadow. A chill was settling on the land. There was an icy layer beneath the new snow and I was walking gingerly, head down. When I stopped to look up, the view took my breath away. The mountains were glowing as if lit from within.

Mesmerizing colors. What a gorgeous piece.

I have to tell you, I'm enjoying your little video clips.
The drives through the icy town with the radio on are intriguing. Thanks for sharing those moments.

Erika, after reading your comment my hat has grown too small--thanks!

Hey Mike--thanks a lot! I'm having a good time exploring this paint.

Silvina, I always am glad to hear from you--thanks. I'm having a blast doing these little movies. They are a fun diversion--my ambition is that some might rise to the "that's so bad it's good" category.

Very nice painting with the feel of winter cold sunlight on the hills.
