March Snow in the Woods

It has been a reasonably cold winter this year with a large number of small storms passing through the region, though most of them produced nothing but flurries or chilly drizzle. The exception came in late February and early March, when a modest snowfall coated much of the area as a surprise reminder that winter was not yet finished. The day after the snow is depicted in this painting - already, the sun is glowing through the trees and melting the snow away.

Acrylic painting: 14" x 17"

  1. I'd say a quick burst of snow is much better than getting it dumped on you with letting up, haha. I realy feel for those back east getting hammered with this winters snow storms. I had fun with it for 3 years in Germany so I'm familiar with snow shovel fun. This is a really nice painting Matthew. Great work on the trees and suggested background through them. Cool!
