I have spent several days working on this 10"x20" Oil Painting, FROSTED MEADOW, dipicting a snow covered irrigated meadow from the Riverton, Wyoming area. In my Painting-a-Day blog I did a frosted tree scene and a good artist friend of mine from Riverton asked if I was going to do some more of that kind of thing. So here it is. Winter in the Riverton area is a deep freeze all winter with subzero temperatures the norm. Fog collects in the valley and freezes on everything making a surreal world of real beauty and challenging scenes for the artist. I shot a number of photos last month that I would like to do some more work from.
