Winter Pines: Scotia, oil on linen panel

When you're an artist, you find that the work you do during one season pays off at a completely different time of year.

This new landscape is an example of this principle. This painting is part of my ongoing "Winter Pines" series, an exploration of the graceful, soothing effect of snow on the landscape deep within Pennsylvania's forests. As the title hints, it's from the Scotia Gamelands of central Pennsylvania near our home.

I ride my mountain bike through these woods during the hottest days of summer, when taking my road bike out onto the radiant asphalt holds no appeal. It's always at least 10 degrees cooler in this wooded preserve (if not more...yikes!), and for the past several years I've gotten to know this retreat just moments from our front door, while carefully memorizing the intricate network of trails. That knowledge of where to go and what to see can pay dividends at the completely opposite time of year: winter.

I caught this view during a January morning after just a couple of fresh, fluffy inches of snow. Every detail was perfectly outlined in white. There was no wind and no one else in the woods. PERFECT!
