Smith Mountain Lake Winter


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.
