|Ice Flow - digital photograph by Bob Bickers|
It has been a very long winter here in Pennsylvania, but one benefit is that I have been able to take many more photos of winter scenes, many of which I will turn into oil paintings. I'll post them here as I do. This image caught my eye mainly because of the colorful grass and the color and texture of the ice that leads your eye to the white bark birch trees. Subtle color and good composition can turn even an ordinary winter scene into a work of art. I do plan to create some variation of this image as an oil painting.
