This painting is inspired by a series of photographs taken by a friend up at the summit in the Salmo-Creston area. People go hiking, snow shoeing and snow-mobiling up this mountain ridge and it’s absolutely stunning there in the winter with alpine trees draped in snow!
I haven’t done very many winter scenes and I rarely use such a limited palette so this painting is a stretch for me creatively. I actually started this canvas last year but was really dissatified. It was set aside for a LONG time before I revisited it and I wasn’t sure if I could redeem it. In the end I think I managed to mostly turned it around. However, now that it is finally spring I truly apologize for the winter reminder!
