First Snow Sunrise

A scattered inch of fresh snow greeted us at dawn.

Needing a subject for my painting demo that night I raced out the door with my camera.

The sun broke through moments later to create the dramatic orange light backdrop, right on cue.

With the help from a few friends at the demo, the rest was easy.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the demo at the downtown Chaffee Art Gallery in Rutland.

Our show “Oil and Water” will be up through the end of the month. I hope you get a chance to check it out if you haven’t already.

And thanks to Meg Barros and everyone at the Chaffee for hosting our class, demo, and show!

    Love the color combos, love the subject, love the demos you’ve been making!
    FYI Can’t see the “Comment” button on the bottom of home page any more – just so you know. A newcomer may not know to come here.

      Thanks Betsy, glad you like the videos, they are one more way to share this adventure and a lot of fun to do to boot. Jackson and Daniel are both artists with a camera. Regarding Comment button, if it’s still missing please give me a call. 235-2328 I can’t see what you are seeing I don’t think but i want to resolve. TY!

    I love pictures of cows. This was particularly great! The snow on the ground was so pretty.

      I love to see the first snow. Looking forward to some good winter scenes soon. Thanks David!

      Thanks Christine, some paintings just naturally evolve with more movement than others…and a strong diagonal is the driving force. I echoed that movement in my brush work throughout the painting.

    GREAT work….and I LOVED your explanation of the fact that “doing the work”, actually painting…even though a JOY-filled experience…is no small “walk in the park.” This is the sign of a true artist….you make it look SO easy…but Au Contraire!!! GREAT work, Peter….and I’ll be sending you a couple of photos via e-mail of the two prints I bought….They’re framed and up and GORGEOUS! We SO LOVE your work!

      Thank you Victoria for the kind words. Yes, I think part of my mission is to peel back the curtain on the mysteries of the creative process, at least mine. While every artist and creative pursuit is different, there are also commonalities that we all face in front of our blank canvas, in whatever form that takes. Just knowing that we are not “alone” can be potent medicine.

    Once again Peter you have not only created a lovely piece of art, but a ‘feeling’ as well.
    It was wonderful to meet you on our American east coast journey. Heading home soon to Canada. Can’t wait to hang up your beautiful art in our home 🙂

      It was my pleasure meeting you and showing you my studio Ingrid and look forward to your next visit. Safe travels, or should I say, bon voyage?
