I'm thinking winter! It was really cold this morning at 3 AM, when I took our puppy out. Most people like Smith Mountain Lake in the summer, but I also love it here in the winter. I'm crazy about painting snow and look for every opportunity to do so. This painting was done from several photos of different scenes I took and then put together. The mountains are Smith Mountain Lake and the barns are Floyd. This is actually my favorite way of painting because it involves using a little of my imagination...something I try to do in each piece of work.
