Winter Sunrise

"Winter Sunrise"
6" x 6"
Oil on hardboard
This piece is a lot like a Maxfield Parrish painting of the same name. I purposely tried to make a sky and mountains like his. The brushwork shows better in person, but you get the idea. 

Every now and then I like to slip into the shoes of an artist I admire by trying to paint one of his pieces. This one appealed to me because of the sky, mountains and the simple trees. It was fun to do and somewhat successful.
