Cliff Cave County Park (View location of my easel)
January 03
"Train, Winter Morning"
Oil     12x16
Inspiration and Design:
A light blanket of snow had fallen overnight on Cliff Cave Park (December 27, 2011).  It was a very clear and bright morning, and shadows stretched from the Cottonwoods to the bluff.  Tall river bluffs and mature Cottonwoods form a channel for the tracks.  My primary goal for this piece was to depict the visual affect of this train path.  My approach to painting is to capture the beauty of form and color of the large masses (4-5) in the compostion.
