Winter Window



This painting has been sitting for several months in a not sure if finished state. My sister picked up on it sitting there and thought it looked good like this, over time I too feel it may be a shame to do anymore to it. I've gotten used to its bare and simple feel, like the beauty of Winter. I love bare trees and Winter light and this piece has a bit of that shining through it, so I'm leaving it like this! A finally finished canvas. 

Just now when I look out my window it's full of late Summer green but in the next months the leaves will slowly fall and we'll be back to bare twisted tree branches and the beauty of Winter!

Linking to Art Journal Journey and Paint Party friday

Beautiful painting, but I am NOT ready to think about winter yet. Been hot hot here this week, feels like the middle of summer, but dry so the leaves are changing and falling. Strange really. xox

Yes, bare trees are beautiful, though winter isn't for me. But there is some joy in your piece! I like it.

These trees are wonderful! And your background is perfect for a cold winter day. I agree with your sister! Happy PPF

Oh Kat it's not bare or simple at all in fact it's magical...I can see little characters within the paintings brush strokes... what fun this is!! I see little birds and a dog or lion, and a face... reminds me of a book I used to read my daughter when she was little... can't remember the title but there were stumps that turned into things at night... then in daylight they were just old stumps and pieces of wood... LOVE this gorgeous canvas!! A little different than your usual style! Stunning though!

Hugs Giggles

It's so lovely, Kat!
The colours and the bare branches mask me feel cooler on this hot day.

So fun that now you see it as complete. it is lovely and i can see the beautiful light in it. autumn colors have begun here. every day i look out and the colors are different.

This is beautiful, deceptively simple, but so satisfying to look at often. Sometimes a painting decides itself that it is done, and this one has.
