New Boots - AM Radio

Winter is the best. It is a relaxed time of year. Time seems to open up a bit and allow one to as they please, rather than running around aimlessly.
I had plans to paint directly after my last final, but it was snowing. I decided to take cover and set up looking out of my garage to paint this tree.

Often times, a clear sky will dominate the day, only to give way to cloudy haze in the last hour of light. These make for some dramatic winter sky's...

...but sometimes, the sky's remain open, allowing golden light to dance on the subject.

I have new boots (thanks mom!) and they have opened up a new world of warm feet. When I painted this larger canvas, I was actually sweating. I spotted this view on the way to Jenny's grandparents house on Christmas, and made a note to return on a sunny day.

Hey, Thanks Josh. I was out today with a 18x24... I'd post it right now, but I have to finish lunch and get back out there for the sunset.

Some very nice painting, reminiscent of Fairfield Porter.

Hi Fortenberry,
Thanks for the heads up. I looked up Mr. Porter, and enjoyed his work.

Thanks, Jennifer!

I love the golden light trees with the whisp of snow. Also, i'm curious, why'd u mention AM radio in the title?
