A cold morning on the lake today; had a few moments of sunshine, just enough to finish this 6 x 8.

Peep Show

This painting will be headed to the beautiful Longbranch Gallery in Mineral Point, Wisconsin for the "Peep Show" opening Saturday, March 5. Obviously, my interpretation of "peep show" is seemingly G-rated, however, my paintings will have an interactive feature that will reveal something else!!! You have to go see them to find out!

Schlitz Audubon #35

I love this pine tree near the entrance of the building. I didn't do it justice, but it was a fun attempt to paint a tree adorned with fresh snow. Every tree was topped with 5" of fresh lake effect snow, it was a magical morning.

Schlitz Audubon #34

Still plenty of ice out on the lake, despite a warm up in temperatures. The photograph shows the powerful icecanos that are still present on this lake landscape.

Schlitz Audubon #33

Painted on this warm, overcast morning. Enjoyed all the little preschoolers stopping by for a peek at my colors. They call dogwood deer pizza, that makes sense!

Schlitz Audubon #32

Hiked back to the prairie area today since the temps are warming up. Set up beside a cross country ski path shown below.

Schlitz Audubon #31

Still pretty cold down by the lake today and lots of ice, but the subtle colors of sky continues to draw us to the water. These additional pictures are of iceburgs that will soon disappear. Thought the pair looked like they were kissing and the single one is just enormous.

Schlitz Audubon # 29 & 30

Enjoyed some time at Schlitz over the weekend. The lakefront is all ice now, can barely see the water. I then packed all my gear in the car to head home, but set it up all over again to enjoy a late afternoon painting. The adhesive toe warmers (double decker method) are the best invention ever for winter plein air painters!

Schlitz Audubon #28

Too cold to venture down to the lake today, so just painted this quickly outside of the administration building. Not a creature was stirring......

Schlitz Audubon #27

Painted this one a few days ago. Glad I'm not at the lake today with these winds, although I can hear the lake "roaring" right now. We're ready for the blizzard.
