Cabin scenes

I received this commission just before Christmas.  A friend who has a cabin up near McCall, Idaho asked me to paint 5 different cabin scenes on blocks of wood from her property.  She went out and collected the fallen wood, planed it down, and finished it, and passed it on to me to use as the painting surfaces.  The project came right down to the wire but was all dry and ready to be given, one to each of her 5 kids, for Christmas.  I especially like the summer scenes because I can’t stand snow.  I told her to give this first one to her favorite child.  She knew I was joking.  I like how they look, it took me a little bit to get a feel for how the paint moved across the sealed wood.  The texture is different, but I have painted on a lot of different things now.  Cool project for a super cool gal.img_8605img_8608

All that snow makes me want to cry looking at it.  But they love snow.img_8586Big mossy rock in the creek.  img_8619

  1. I like this series, and especially the 4th painting with the snowed-in house. In all of them you had a great sense of the light and the texture of things without going too much into detail. I want to get to that point, as well. 🙂 Greetings from Germany and Happy New Year!
