winter sky (sold)

Winter skies are full of colour—or at least I see it—early pinks culminate into saturated purples at day’s end.

My Mom used to paint every day, and I now have her supplies that she can no longer use. I have deliberatly worked this with her paints and brushes—she loves a winter sky.



  1. My mother was an artist too! I think it is lovely you are using her brushes and paints to paint a scene she would love too. It is a dark scene Jan and a little unsettling to the eye, I fear a night storm is set in. Nice to see you are still painting those fine winter scenes.

  2. beautiful....


  3. Hi Jan--Thanks for hitting the follow button on my blog--welcome! It has been a genuine treat for me to discover your paintings. I've now looked at all of them--some I just didn't want to take my eyes off of. Fantastic powerful style. Wm

  4. A wonderful piece, and made that much more meaningful knowing you used your Mother's supplies. I see these colors often as the sun sets outside my skylight in the studio. They are so stunning, sometimes I have to take a photo. It is February, but with the stronger higher sun, life is beginning all around us. Your painting shows this awakening.
