This is my first post and I thought it would be fit to share a painting that was inspired by the beautiful frozen landscape of Northern Minnesota. While some find Winter to be a bleak season, you can find color all around you if you just look for it. Winter berries hang on low growing branches for little birds like Chickadees to feast on during the winter, and in this colorful triptych, these shiny little berries are complemented by a rich frosty blue background.
