|Wickford, From the Back, Oil on Canvas, 11x14|
The scene was an especially charming one due to a recent snowfall.
But after the most recent snowfall -- what has become known as the Blizzard of 2013-- I drove to Goddard Park which has a collection of old trees and sketched this one directly:

Part of "Winter Work" is going over old paintings, correcting them, perhaps heightening their effects in color and tone, making them more stimulating to look at. Winter work also includes going over some photos I had taken over the last year or so. I found one of my favorite spot, Beavertail, and worked the theme, which includes the Lighthouse in the Impressionist manner here:

But such a painting is a rare occurrence for me since I love to work en plein air!
Winter work will continue on Saturday, 2 to 4 PM, when I perform a Portrait Demo at Galeria United at 200 Main Street in Pawtucket. Please come by and enjoy the fun! Galeria United also displays several of my seascape paintings.
