Snow Tipi

Snow Tipi
6 x 6 inches
Oil on wood panel.

This was an experiment on my part. An imagined painting. I love mountains, especially with lots of snow. It is amazing the different colors that nature makes so I wanted to play with that. I also love tipis. They are an incredible invention, a portable home that you can take anywhere. They are a great geometric shape and represent a history that is long and fascinating. Finally, I have always loved the many haystacks in winter paintings of Claude Monet. In a way this is my homage to the great master.
