The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

January 4, Snowy evening in purple

Hilary says I lean toward a purple palette. Since I was already leaning in that direction, I pushed it just a little further and painted a snowy evening in purple. Since it's also a wooded scene, totally from my imagination, it also hints at Robert Frost's "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening," a poem worth committing to memory. The painting harkens, too, of Frost's "easy wind and downy flake" with fantasy swirls of wind and snow.

This painting is 11" x 14" and as per my unique pricing system, $40.



  1. Gee, what a fine purple painting!

  2. neat....I am awaiting the next and the next...thanks..mark p

  3. Very surreal--the subtitle could be "Long Prairie, Minnesota, meets 'Harold and the Purple Crayon.'"

    It's one of those places you wish were really there instead of just in your imagination!!

  4. Mark, glad you made it into the comment box : )

    Rachel, just call me Harold : )
