|"Echo Valley Cabin" 7x7 oil on panel Sold|
It's Christmas morning 2016. The year is almost at an end and I think about all the great adventures I have had this year. All the wonderful time with friends and family. This painting was inspired by one of those times on a family outing to Echo Valley with my wife Ann, our kids and grandkids. I painted very fast,and very gesturally here to capture the feel of a blowing, cold and wintery landscape, then added the touch of warmth in the window of the cabin to give the feel of the comfort of home in harsh surroundings. That's the feeling our family gives us.....and that's the feeling that faith in a Savior gives us. After all, Jesus is the reason for the season. Wishing you all the comfort of faith and family this Holiday season from our family to yours.
