Middlebury Snow Bowl

I take a lot of risks in art.

A visit to the Middlebury College Snow Bowl last week had me thinking maybe I should hit the slopes and join the fun.

Then I remembered… I can’t ski.

It’s probably tough to paint with broken limbs.

Better stick to what I know.

    You’ve taken elements from two rather unremarkable photos and with a wonderful eye for composition and bold but nonetheless realistic color choices, and ended up with a most pleasing painting filled with the brilliance and joy of a great day on the ski slopes!

      Thank you very much Brian! I do love composition, it’s like playing with blocks when I was a kid.

    About 16 years ago I mastered the bunny trail at Pico so I thought I would try the Snow bowl next. No way. Gave awY my skiis and took up golf. Much safer.

    Such a cheerful painting. I am reading “The War of Art”. Very good. Don’t remember who recommended it to me (maybe you). If you haven’t read it, it is worth the time and effort!

      Thanks Christine, it probably was me. I recommend it at least several times a week to anyone who will listen. Glad you did!

    Hallo Peter, normally the Middlebury College Snow Bowl should buy your painting as an advertising. I’m waiting for the next fresh painting.

      Thanks Doris! I think all my paintings eventually find their rightful home. I see it happen over and over again.

    Hello Peter! Thank you for allowing me to join this wonderful group. As I am from and still live in the South (Stone Mountain, GA) your paintings allow me to visit vicariously to what looks to be wonderful country! I just love them! This one looks as if I could just walk right up! Thank you again! Linda
