Something reminding me of the great russian painter Isaac Levitan. High luminous intensity. Palpable shiny snow. Palpable clear sky. Feelings of bliss. Freshness, brightness... Silence... Only the musical sound of an endearing nightingale, hidden in the trees, singing some fairy tales to its hatchings. And in this humble little cabanon, I imagine a loving couple living a true love... A mere existence,far from the big smoke. And ere long, Christmas!

Brr, Here too. Just beautiful. Lovely indeed.

I love the journaling along with your paintings. It's fun to read a little of what is going on and what led up to the paintings.. etc!

Julian: You would enjoy painting the winters here in New England. Brrring lots of warm
clothing and cognac.

Bloomin, bloomin hansome, that light on the snow, and the shadow colour, big J you is a magician!

This is my favorite sort of painting- there is an almost humble clarity and honesty here that completely stops me in my tracks. The way I see it, the best sort of beauty is firmly grounded in reality.
By the way, I hate painting outside in the cold, and I am impressed that you can manage it.

Yesterday I was looking at the Monet's in the National - and the Sisley's - I especially love the latter & think he is vastly underated; I love this painting - such clarity- you can feel the crispness of the snow. Thanks. Von

I hope everything is okay.

I hate to get the whip out but the days are just not the same without the morning shot of beauty from your paintings. Are you still working on the portrait you spoke of earlier?

journaling? Where can I see your journaling?
