Winter Landscape

I thought I'd share this painting on the blog---it's one of my first attempts at plein air painting.

Winter. oil on linen panel. 8"x10". 2008.
$300 USD (frame included)

We spent the Christmas holiday with Mandy's parents in Wyoming, and while there I painted this painting. It was a balmy 10 degrees out at the time. (Which was the warmest it got the entire week we were there.) The paint actually started to freeze and became a little difficult to push around. Here's me braving the elements:

Hey Casey,
Thanks for the movie promotion!! Jonathan and I almost died laughing! It was awesome!

I like your painting too. You should do more plein air. Looks fun!

Good times...I love the way it turned out. And it looks great in that frame. Nice work bro!

Tina--an amazing film such as that needed a poster, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was fun. We'll have to do some plein air painting together, maybe this summer?

Kake--thanks! I should have put in there some sledders being dragged around by a 4wheeler, huh? You need to come see the painting I'm working on of you!
