I did the painting above in the middle of a dark and dreary winter when I was starved for color. I’m sure everyone in Fairbanks knows this feeling at one time or another! I love color and color mixing, and did this while practicing with a new set of paintbrushes. It was fun to see what they could do. I cannot tell a lie. I took this photo with my iPhone. I am trying to find a digital camera and am wishing I had taken a photography class before this one!
