This egg tempera painting was inspired by the feeling and sights of mid-winter in the Colorado Rockies.

I woke before dawn and stepped out into the crisp air.  There was a fresh layer of snow dusting the grass and trees.  I sought refuge, visiting ‘old friends’ that I have come to know, traveling this well-worn path.

The sun rose slowly over the eastern plains.  The angle low on the horizon, the light weak.  Clothed in a blanket of fog, the city had disappeared.   Gentle and illusive, a warm glow of winter sun filtered through the churning fog.  Long past it’s prime, the tree stood in a shimmering coat.  Proud, strong and beautiful.
