Here is my latest completed work callled "Spring Breakup". It is large 30" x 40" oil on 2" gallery canvas. I like this rendition because of its starkness of line and form. The vertical birch trees are in stark contrast to the horizontal rocks with the ice stripes in the grooves of the rocks. The ice breaking up on the lake occupies the central portion of the painting. The far shore and the sky fade off to the distance for depth.
