Snowfall, Sugarloaf Mountain, 2022
Acrylic on Birch Panel, 3D Relief
12 x 24 in
Snowfall, Sugarloaf Sugarloaf Mountain, in picturesque Carrabassett Valley has always inspired me based on its year around natural beauty and highlighted by its above the tree line snow capped peak. The largest ski area east of the Rocky Mountains, its rich history and terrain have given it a loyal following. Doing a winter scene gave me the opportunity to experiment with white upon white. I painted part of the background white, then placed a 3D white wood cut out and cork snowflakes also in white to pop and be defined by their shadows.
