Winter Painting

I started this painting a year ago or so, as I remember working on it over the week of Christmas 2007! I got to a point that I just didn't know what to do with it so I left it until a few months ago. I finally "saw" what had been bugging me and so I fixed it. I just looked at my blogs and did not find that I had posted this particular painting. I had gone to Prospect Park with PAAC in November 2007 I believe it was and when I finished painting the painting below, Prospect Park in Winter (8"x6"), I turned around and saw another beautiful scene. I took photos and then painted in the studio. It is called "Storm's Coming" and is 16"x12." I sure do enjoy painting trees.

Your description of the events leading to the 2nd painting struck me as a metaphor for life. Seeing what's in front and in back of us can provide 2 completely different views, both very real.
